Stansfeld-Hicks, C.:

Yachts, Boats and Canoes: with special chapters on model yachts and single-handed sailing.

London: Sampson Low & Co., [1888 or earlier]. First UK edition. xii, 384pp, followed by 16 foldout plans, +xii (adverts); with a frontis, 8 plates, a folding displacement sheet, and many drawings in text. Adverts also to endpapers. Defective, lacking both the title page and p.xi/xii in the prelims, which should conclude the list of diagrams. First plan quite creased, but the rest are good, one or two with repairs or mis-folds. In the original binding of navy cloth with yacht in gilt on front, lettered in black, spine lettered in gilt: rebacked, conserving the yellow advertisement endpapers, and with the original worn spine laid down. Good firm working copy. [Precedes the 1888 US first edition.] Good.
