The Kedge-Anchor or Young Sailors' Assistant - Woodworking
by William N. Brady

This is the 1888 edition of William Brady's original 1847 Kedge-Anchor. Some accommodation had been made for the advent of early steam-powered ships, but it was still the primary manual for sailors, dealing with everything involved in maintaining and sailing the tall ships. The numerous engravings and 100 pages of tables complement the concise and direct instruction of the text.

A wonderful book for anybody who might be sailing in a tall ship, it is equally of interest to those who are curious about the history of the period and the great range of knowledge once required of military sailors. Much of the information is as valuable to today's small boat sailor as it was to the U.S. Navy 160 years ago. Vessel handling under adverse conditions is one of many such subjects that have remained relevant through the years.

Smyth-sewn softcover, 6" x 9", 419 pages. First published in 1888. Reprinted as part of our Classic Reprint Series.
