The book covers the Scilly steam packets, the coasting trade, wrecks, lifeboats, lighthouses, salvage operations, Penzance Harbour in wartime, the history of the dry dock and the West Cornwall Maritime Festival - in fact all you need to know about this vibrant maritime centre. Beautifully illustrated with over 200 photographs, maps and drawings.

The condition of the book is generally very good. The covers are clean and bright, the spine is tight and intact, and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound. There is an old price printed and a small price sticker on the rear side cover.
