Landlubbers may be surprised to learn that at sea, a sheet is made of rope, not cloth. But even experienced sailors will discover new meanings for everyday words in this unique nautical reference. First published in 1867, "The Sailor's Word-Book" defines some 14,000 terms from A, "the highest class of merchant ships," to zumbra, "a Spanish skiff or yawl." Whether the reader is a naval history buff, a fan of nautical fiction, or a yachting enthusiast, this new edition of a classic will prove a seaworthy companion.
