THE YACHTSMAN'S ENGLAND (Vol. III -- English Scene Series)

Three cheers! This, the third volume of the English Scene Series, is illustrated--and what a whale of a difference the eight exquisite plates make. The only flaw in the series seemed to be the lack of illustrations. The text is by Frank Carr, a cruising man of the first order. Eric Parker is to be congratulated on securing his services for the writing. It is hard to see how Carr could have done a better job. Starting with England's rivers which he calls the yachtsman's nursery he yarns on and on through the seas, the men, the boats--with such rare charm and subtle persuasion that an Arab would feel he had spent his life on the English waters. He catches you up in the spell of the sea. There is, of course, a double market--lovers of anything English and yachtsmen. By yachtsmen I don't mean just owners of the Ranger, Corsair, Yankee, but the hundreds of men, women and children who sail craft on the innumerable rivers, bays, lakes and seas of this country. Never has the sport been more popular. Tap it while the sap is running fast these summer days. Make a display of yachting books and notify local yachtsmen and clubs.
