Sir David William Bone (1874-1959) was a Scottish author. His father was a well-known Glasgow journalist; his great-grandfather was a boyhood companion of Robert Burns. Bone went to sea as an apprentice in the City of Florence, an old-time square-rigger, at the age of fifteen. Captain Bone's fine sea tale, The Brassbounder, published in 1910, has become a classic of the squaresail era; his Broken Stowage (1915) is a collection of shorter sea sketches. His other works include: Merchantmen at Arms (1919), The Lookoutman (1923), Capstan Bars (1931), Merchantmen Rearmed (1949), The Queerfella (1952) and Landfall at Sunset (1955).
