"This Australian edition, which follows the revised and enlarged second edition (1969), includes the results of research into hundreds of journals of ships' surgeons in an authoritative and fascinating account of this little-known field of maritime history ... Charles Bateson reconstructs not only the voyages themselves, but also the administrative system under which the ships were selected, manned, provisioned and despatched with their miserable human freight to face a 13,000 miles voyage over tempestuous and largely uncharted seas." -- CD case.
