Binding: HC

Illustrator: B&W illustrations


694pp "During the last forty-nine years navies have increased more than a hundredfold in power; that is, in the amount of destructive power they can exert. This has been accomplished by utilizing the mechanical power of steam, electricity, gunpowder, and explosives, and by inventing instruments and methods with which to direct the mechanical power accurately at its objective. During all the time in which this increase in naval power was being accomplished I had the good fortune not only to be a close observer, but to contribute some essential parts. In fact, it has often been said to me that I did more to increase the power of navies than any other one man." very good, blue cloth (hardcover). Bookseller Inventory # 020310
