Ships, Ports, and Pilots: A History of the Piloting Profession


This product is not available in the selected currency.

Descripció

The Bible speaks of pilots in several places. References to pilots by the ancients in classical writing were commendatory and admiring. It seems very likely that professional pilots were guiding ships 3000 years B.C. Piloting is guiding seacraft in and out of seaports, avoiding the dangers of sandbars, ridges, underwater rocks, etc. This definitive history traces the important profession through the centuries, with special attention to maritime law.
