Collins Harvill, London - first edition ISBN:0002727757, 1986. Hardcover, 8½" x 6", with dust jacket. Our copy is an ex-library one, with usual stamps, stickers, barcode etc. VERY GOOD book in VERY GOOD unclipped dust jacket. Grey cloth-bound boards with gold title to spine, light-blue endpapers, 29 b&w photographs, several diagrams, biographical sketch, and glossary of terms. In 1931 literary genius Hilaire Belloc acquired an ancient Channel Island pilot cutter, the 'Jersey' ('the oldest yatch on Lloyd's register'), and went back to sea, a nostalgic return to his earlier days in the 'Nona'. Dermond MacCarthy became one of his youthful crew for memorable expeditions along England's south coast, across to France, and north to the Dutch canals. To sail with Mr Belloc was rarely without incident, as these delightful memoirs prove.
