A book combining humour with nautical scholarship - most of us never realise how many words and expressions used in everyday English have a fascinating nautical origin. This charming little book wittily explains the shipboard beginnings of over 200 - colourful, bizarre, surprising - and how they came ashore. A consistently popular buy and great "Christmas stocking filler" material. B/w cartoon illustrations by the author. PB. 96pp.
