Maritime history is an essential part of British history, and we offer memoirs from life at sea as well as beautiful coffee table books. We stock many interesting publications from well-known publishers such as Seaforth Publishing or Conway but also stock independent self-published titles.
This book is based on the unpublished journals of William Schaw Lindsay (1815-1877) housed in the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich. From rags to riches. Born in Scotland and orphaned by the age of 10, Lindsay ran away to sea at the age of 16.
