1948 1st edition. 8vo (140 x 220mm). Ppxviii,299. B/w photograph plates and illustrations, map end-papers. Red cloth, spine titled in black.

This is a valuable history of the ships, builders and ship owners of Aberdovey, Borth and the Dovey estuary, many good pictures of not otherwise well-known vessels. Mainly schooners but also brigs and brigantines, and one early barquentine. The author gives a detailed account of the geography and economy of the Dovey including accounts of local life, voyages, building costs of several ships and a list of all vessels built locally between 1840 and 1880. The account closes with the arrival of the railway, when all trade by sea ceased.
