I read this book many years ago, a library copy, and have been looking for a copy of my own ever since. If you love sailing ships and/or the history of the United States Navy, this is almost a must-have.

The used copy was in excellent condition. The only deficiency was the missing dust jacket, but I knew about that going in.
