Distance Run – The Story of the Patent Ships Log

Last Ever 100 Copies of this Limited Edition. ‘1st Class piece of Research’.

Our good friend Tony Sharp has performed the arduous task of putting together a comprehensive guide to one of most important navigational instruments, the ship-log. The book is large format, containing colour photographs of 74 different logs, 175 pages of text, including numerous line drawings. We anticipate that this book will be of interest to the academic, collector & enthusiast alike. Under a thousand books were ever published and with no plans to re-print making these the very last ever copies. Be sure to get one before they disappear into libraries.
