Illustrated with over 200 photographs that were principally taken on the voyage of the little square rigged ship 'Joseph Conrad' during her round the world voyage 1934 - 1936, a voyage that Villiers would use for a number of books.. The photographs give, in something of chronological order, the story of the old schoolship Joseph Conrad's circumnavigation in 1934-35-36; and indicate in some measure the methods employed on board in the making of youthful sailors. A second group of photographs illustrates the work of the new Danish schoolship, Georg Stage, towards the same end. Over 200 photographs. Small loss to head of spine of d/w, and very small hole at center of spine of d/w. chipped. NOT PRICE CLIPPED. Boards slightly dusty at edges, head/tail of spine bumped. Overall a very nice copy, INTERNALLY EXCELLENT, CLEAN TIGHT AND BRIGHT. NO INSCRIPTIONS.; 002405; 4to (small)
