The Seaman's Friend by R.H. Dana, Jr. (book about ships and seamanship in the Age of Sail)

This 1873 book by Richard Henry Dana, Jr., an American lawyer and one-time merchant sailor, is a slim volume (just over 230 pages). But it is rich in content and wide in scope as can be gleaned from the book's complete title: 'The Seaman's Friend: Containing A Treatise on Practical Seamanship, with Plates; A Dictionary of Sea Terms; Customs and Usages of the Merchant Service; Laws Relating to the Practical Duties of Masters and Mariners'. (7.7 MiB, PDF, 238 pages)
