A beautiful gift book -- but watch your customer. Many of the enthusiasts for sailing small boats (under 40 feet) will have already had in original form much of the material condensed for this symposium of the stories of Capt. Solcum, Tambs, Robinson, Drake, Conor O'Brien, Voss, Pidgeon, Gerbault and others. The cream of the material is here -- for those not familiar with the originals. And in addition material about types of boats, equipment, maps, etc. Should be good for a plus sale for older boys.
