From Baird Online:
A beautifully produced, written and illustrated book. This really is a classic. Trinity House is one of Britain's most ancient and venerable institutions. Incorporated in 1514 during the reign of Henry VIII, it is responsible for the buoys, light houses and navigation aids located around the whole English coast.
This book benefits from an author who is not only an experienced and very successful maritime historian, but a former Master of several Trinity House vessels. No better author could be imagined for such work. An ideal combination that results in a remarkable work.
