Published in 1919, The Old Merchant Marine: A Chronicle of American Ships and Sailors describes the glory days of American merchant shipping. It was written by the noted American journalist and author, Ralph Delahaye Paine (1871 – 1925). The first two sentences will make you want to continue reading till the end of the book: The story of American ships and sailors is an epic of blue water which seems regularly remote, almost unreal, to the later generations. A people with a native genius for seafaring won and held a brilliant supremacy through two centuries and then forsook this heritage of theirs. (6.8 MiB, PDF, 230 pages)
