4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Reference for the Aubrey/Maturin Series, Nov. 9 2003
For someone starting out in the Aubrey/Maturin (or any other sea stories, for that matter), this is an excellent companion. While I am somewhat familiar with nautical terms, I found it helpful to have a handy reference for the language of the sea and of Georgian Britain. This is a useful volume for fans of other Nelsonian heroes such as Horatio Hornblower, Richard Bolitho, and Nathaniel Drinkwater.
