Bibliographic Notes

A 60-page, pocket-size notebook which runs briefly through the whole gamut of tonnage measurement; stability; preparation of holds; dunnage; tallying; stowage of bulk cargoes, casks, barrels, bags and refrigerated food-stuffs; loading of deep tanks; general cargo trades; deck cargoes; and cargo handling. This is a useful work from which the apprentice or junior officer can cull much practical information without having to wade through the digressions and complications of weightier volumes. Serves as a ready reminder on a multitude of points.
