KIRKUS REVIEW

An abridgement of the original three-volume Sail: The Romance of Clipper Ships. Jack Spurling's portraits of the great sailing ships from 1850 to WW I are reproduced from covers of the British magazine, Blue Peter, a collector's item long out of print. Basil Lubbock's text describes the history of the ships, their lore and legend and the publishers have taken great care with design and production to make this a very special book, alive with the spirit of the era and the timeless lure of the sea.
