This dictionary defines the technical language relative to the building and equipment of sailing vessels and steamers, seamanship, navigation, nautical astronomy, naval gunnery, maritime law and commerce, marine insurance, and other terms relating to maritime affairs. With an appendix containing the international regulations for preventing collisions at sea, and a vocabulary of French terms.
The author complains that "in this great maritime country, with the exception of the present work, there is no modern Dictionary of maritime terms". This book is the second edition (1863) of a famous and well known maritime dictionary, and reflects the revolution introduced by the use of steam propulsion, and the extensive changes in the language of seafaring men.
As well as the first edition, published in 1846, this edition defines nautical language with especial reference to merchant shipping, but is also extended to warship vocabulary and to several additional terms, including obsolete words.
Each of the engraved plates has an index prefixed to it. The introduction of French words in the Dictionary, and of a French vocabulary, by way of supplement, is intended to give an accurate groundwork for the study of the French nautical language. The regulations for preventing collisions at sea, issued simultaneously by the authorities in England and France, are, by the permission of the Board of Trade, added as an Appendix.
