(ADMIRALTY.) H.M. Sea Transport Service.
Regulations and Instructions.
Contents: Regulations for H.M. Sea Transport Service; Instructions for Masters of Transports; Instructions for Masters of Freight Ships; Instructions for Superintending Sea Transport Officers.
Scarce collected edition, retaining the original sheets, of these four handbooks all jointly issued by the Admiralty and the Board of Trade “for official use only”. Scarce: just two copies of this iteration traced in libraries (Delft and The Hague); individually the texts are represented by six, five, seven and two copies respectively in libraries world-wide. These handbooks appear to have been first published in this collected form in 1908.
