    Agreed. It is a classic piece of nautica.
     
    I have two copies. One I keep at home and one on my boat, although to be honest, the one on my boat is more for recreational reading at night when things are shut down, the anchors are secure and I have not a care in the world save concerns over rum supplies.

    The Raft Book. Lore of the Sea and Sky. Written by noted aviator Harold Gatty, this vintage book comes in its original slipcase with one big "coffee table-sized" map printed on both sides, one big "coffee table-sized" chart printed on both sides with Northern and Southern Latitudes and one "Greenwich Date and Hour Scales" ruler-like paper piece. Copyright 1943. No printing date stated but there is a 1943 on the title page. George Grady Press, publishers. SOFTCOVER (paperback), approx. 5-1/2" x 7-1/2", 152 pages. This is NOT a former library copy.

    Please review the photos carefully. Cover has bumped, worn corners and a little edge wear. Page corners are bumped. There is a little separation between a couple of the pages but nothing is loose because of it. There is a name written on the title page and a light erasure mark on the inside front cover. Slipcase has edge and corner wear plus edge wear on the pasted-on illustration. Slipcase surfaces have some scuffing/scratching and soil. Label on the slipcase spine is discolored.
