A  collection of books by Captain Alan Villiers, an important  authority in the world of seamanship in sail and steam.  The books are quite remarkable for their sheer variety, and depth of research, with many illustrations and reminiscences from the author's own impressive life at sea.

All these books are cloth bound, hard cover, many on art paper, uncut.

A few are First Editions, rare and sought-after.

"Alan Villiers is one of those rare men of action who can write simply and compellingly".


"He is an enthusiast upon the subject and makes his readers feel that enthusiasm before half a dozen pages have been turned".
