Darcy Lever was born around 1760 and as a young man he went out to India where he acquired his nautical skills. On his return to England he settled first of all in Leeds and later at Pontefract.

Illustrated with over 600 drawings and diagrams engraved onto 113 plates, the book explains in clear and easy terms every aspect of the art of seamanship, rigging and ship-handling from the days of wooden ships and sail.
