A YACHTING CRUISE ON THE BALTIC


S.R. Graves


Longman, Green... 1863


a fine account of a ten-week cruise in the summer of 1862 sailing on the yacht 'Ierne' from Fort William on the west coast of Scotland, through the Caledonian Canal and in the waters of the Baltic. of interest both as an account of a mid-19th century yachting cruise, and as an excellent descriptive account of Denmark, Sweden and Russia at this period

ppxii 399. 11 tinted lithograph plates, including folding frontispiece, and six wood-engraved illustrations

re-cased into the original blue cloth gilt binding, with the original back-strip re-laid over a new spine. slight wear to the binding, and with 'foxing' to the plates, but generally a good bright copy
