    Glossaire Nautique.

    Repertoire Polyglotte de Terms de Marine Anciens et Modernes.
    First edition. Jal was a member of the French naval historical section, becoming official historiographer and eventually head of the archives. This universal marine dictionary was a labour of love, absorbing much of Jal's time for over 6 years, winning him the prestigious Prix Gobert of the Académie Française. "This work contains in one alphabetical sequence words from Latin, Greek, Modern Greek, French, Old French, Italian, Portuguese, Swedish, Dutch, Breton, Genoese, Basque, Catalan, Maltese, and other dialects and tongues; comparatively little in English, German and Russian; monumental work, with full definitions, not mere equivalents" (Craig).
