The Sea: Its History and Romance.

London: Halton & Truscott Smith, 1924-1926.

Sixteen parts bound in four volumes quarto, illustrated in colour and black & white; publisher's blue cloth boards, gilt, sailing ship vignette to front boards.

A particularly handsome set

An attractive set of Bowen's deluxe history of sailing and voyaging. The four volumes cover the history of voyaging to 1875, concentrating on the achievements of Great Britain ("Britain and her cousins must always look to Blue Water for their salvation"). This is a relatively early title by Bowen, a well-known and popular maritime author, who published titles such as Ships for All, and as editor of Merchant Ships of the World.
