I recently obtained a copy of The Shipwright’s Vade-Mecum from a charity shop. It is signed in the front by Richard Tregenna presumably of Pembroke Docks. It also has a pencilled inscription “by Author J.W. Norie”. Can this be right as this is the 1805 edition and I read that Norie’s edition was 1822?
The ‘Four Large Accurate Draughts fitted up separately . . .’ [mentioned in the preface] were not included…. Can anyone tell me what they comprised of please? According to the preface they are not repeated from Steel’s larger publication.
Here is a link to the detail you require [about Steel’s A Shipwright’s Vade Mecum, 1805 edition]:
Thank you for that Robert. A useful list all round! I have since obtained photocopies of the missing plates from the British Library.
