Illustrated Nautical Dictionary, unabridged


Recommended Posts

Patterson’s Illustrated Nautical Dictionary, unabridged

by Howard Patterson (1891)
 
As the title suggests, lots of pictures and I found some especially interesting. For example, page 58, a boat chock for holding ships’ boats on deck that is notched to allow a clinkerbuilt boat to sit securely; page 55, the knots for a bosuns chair. It is worth a look.

Quite a few of the illustrations are identical to that of PAASCH's multi-lingual dictionary 'From Keel to Truck', first published in 1885 ...

Have you noticed the text on page 10? I believe there is a pattern.

Definitely a "keeper!" Thanks for sharing. I've not seen this one before.

 

My first stop in the dictionary department has always been the Oxford Companion to Ships and the Sea, from the publishers of the Oxford English Dictionary. I have a hardcover first edition, but it's now out in a later second edition, hardcover and paperback, and, also accessible on line by subscription:
