From the rear side cover: Two hundred years ago the Royal Navy sloop of war, Racehorse, smashed to pieces on a rocky reef off the coast of the Isle of Man.

The condition of the book is generally very good. The covers are clean and bright, the spine is intact, and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound.
