91070 Nautical Curiosities, £9.99

Sorry, out of stock until March 2017

There are many other “nautical compendiums”, but this one focuses on the unusual, the overlooked and the downright extraordinary.

For example Admiral William Brown, who released Garibaldi and without whom modern Italy might not exist, receives equal coverage to Nelson.

You might wish to know the origins of phrases such as “born with a silver spoon”, “the pot calling the kettle black” and “bog orange”; or you can read about pirate havens, ship speed records and endangered fish species.

A book you can dip into at random and will always find something of interest. 

384 pages, hardback.
