Swin, Swale & Swatchway

Swin, Swale & Swatchway

The Lost Classic of Victorian Cruising

H. Lewis Jones

Synopsis: Published in 1892 in a small and now scarce edition, Swin, Swale & Swatchway pre-dates and inspires both Maurice Griffiths and Francis B. Cooke in giving us the sailor’s experience of London’s doorstep wilderness, the Thames Estuary, and the boats and characters inhabiting it in late Victorian times. These charming adventures and human encounters have an engaging immediacy about them, and are enhanced by the author’s many photographs, which have weathered the years well to provide a priceless glimpse of a perhaps familiar territory, but in a time long gone from us.

ISBN 978-1-907206-30-6; 216 x 156mm, 144 pages, mono photos, map. Softcover with sewn binding, cover flaps and matt lamination.
