Manual of Yacht and Boat Sailing and
(11th and final edition, 1913, edited by
Heckstall-Smith and Hope)
This is a Dictionary.
This is the index page -- it's not finished yet.
Individual pages in the Dictionary have not
received final proofing so there are lots of typos,
I'm sure, as well as a few missing words.
Not only that but the paragraph formatting will
probably look completely wacko.
There are few illustrations yet.
About the Dictionary:
Items which also appear in the Dictionary
in the first edition will be flagged in
red. I may also add,
in brackets, terms which were omitted by the 11th
edition though I will not add their definitions
because I don't have an OCR-able copy of the 1878
first edition. I may try to add any significant
items which are in the first edition, however, at
some later point in an Appendix to the Dictionary.
The spelling and punctuation have been
changed only slightly and in most cases the English
spelling has been preserved. The main changes are
as usual eliminating rampant hyphenated terms.
