the first printed version of an early 17th century manuscript by Captain Nathaniell Butler, which provides an invaluable record of naval life and organisation of the times. the six dialogues cover Commanders in Chief, the common mariner, victualling of the fleets, the parts of a ship, the best ships of war, and a compendium of current ideas on the handling
of ships and fleets in action
