NICOLSON, Ian. The Log of the Maken. With coloured frontispiece by David Cobb. London : Peter Davies, (1961). First Printing. Pp (6),1-[193],(1) + frontispiece. 8vo, red cloth, silver lettering to spine. Toy 0735 : "a well-written and entertaining account". "This is the fascinating story of how Ian Nicolson, yachtsman, naval architect and author, joined a Canadian and Norwegian to sail the 45-foot ketch Maken from England via the Panama Canal to Vancouver, Canada. The Log of the Maken is more than just a 'sailing book'.While that side of the story will fascinate all devotees of the arts and m ysteries of long-range ocean cruising, the accounts of the crew's life together in the tiny craft, thousands of miles from land - of their adventures ashore (thieves almost stripped the boat in Las Palmas, Nicolson won a television contest in San Francisco, and all three of them left their hearts behind in Barbados), their attempts to enliven a diet of canned food by spearing porpoises: all of this adds up to an extremely entertaining and oftern exciting tale of enterprise and adventure." - from the dj. Very good in dustjacket. 25.00
