Revised by Captain G. M. Pepper
This is the 29th edition of this famous book which was first published in 1905. The last edition was published in 2004 but enormous changes have taken place in seafaring since then.
Nicholls’s Seamanship and Nautical Knowledge has been recognised as a standard volume on nautical subjects for many years. The addition of Nautical Knowledge to the title indicates that this is not just a book on seamanship but one that seeks to provide basic information on many of the matters covered and identifies where the mariner can find an authoritative reference.
This new edition, the first revision for over ten years, has been extensive and concentrates on legislative changes which seem to occur with ever greater frequency.
While much basic information is unchanged, three new chapters are the result of splitting previous subjects and the addition of a chapter on environmental matters.
This is a specialist book packed with all aspects of seamanship and is essential reading for anyone embarking on career at sea.
As such I would very highly recommend it.
