  1. What have you received today?

    Picked up some nice books, bound in tooled navy blue leather. Algebra, Plane Trigonometry, Analytical Statics, Integral Calculus and Differential Calculus, all by Isaac Todhunter, along with Natural Philosophy by Dionysius Lardner. The (tenuous) relevance to ships are the dedications: In the books by Isaac Todhunter it reads, "Portsmouth Yard Presented to Thomas J. Dodd Shipwright Apprentice, by the Lords of the Admiralty, for his excellent conduct, and progress in his studies, during the year 1866." While in the book by Dionysius Lardner it reads, "This book was presented to Thomas Dodd as a mark of their Lordships approbation of his uniform good conduct and progress in his studies during the year 1863" The Admiralty Superintendent signatures I can't read.
