"As its title suggests, this book is "all about ships and shipping," in the sense that it is wholly concerned with those subjects. My own personal experience has demonstrated its value, for facts and figures quickly needed are at one's finger-tips. Here is a nautical reference library in a nut-shell when time or space is limited. It is both a fascinating compendium of things a sailor or ship-lover needs to know, and a bedside book which tempts one to browse. Ten editions and fifty-six years "going strong" are sure evidence that the book is needed. May it have that continued success which it deserves." -From the Foreword by Frank G.G. Marr.
