1 MATHEW, David Britain in Pictures Series British Seamen. First Edition in dustjacket
Collins, London, 1943, 
MATHEW, David. British Seamen. London : "William Collins of London", 1943. Pp. (6),7-47,(1) + 4 leaves of colour plates. With other illustrations in the text. 8vo, decorated blue and white paper-covered boards. From the Britain in Pictures Series. David James Mathew (b. January 15, 1902, Lyme Regis,Dorset - d. December 12, 1975, London) was an English Roman Catholic bisho p, historian and was a Royal Navy midshipman in the First World War. A slimvolume showcasing some of the key moments in British naval history, from t he defeat of the Spanish Armada to shortly before the outbreak of the FirstWorld War. "Bishop Mathew, one of whose ancestors is a famous admiral, him self served as a Midshipman in the Tiger during the last war. He therefore writes of British Seamen from some first hand knowledge and, since he is also an eminent historian, he gived in this book a brilliant account of his subject from early days down to the present time. The author writes of our great Naval engagements with force and vividness, of the sailors with deep appreciation and understanding, of the ships themselves with knowledge and love. His style is witty and condensed and the book which may ostensibly be read for profit and information will give at least equal measure of entertainment and will delight all discerning readers by the brillianace with which so vast and complex a subject is compressed, into so small and satisfyinga compass." - from the jacket. Very good in edgeworn dustjacket. 15.00
