Description: Adapted from the rear cover: "When Humphrey Pemberton, descendant of a long line of Sussex fishermen and smugglers, throws up a lucrative job in London and returns to his native Sussex to become a fisherman himself, he plunges head-first into a maelstrom of adventure ashore and afloat, plus romance as intriguing as it is unexpected. With its intimate close-ups of trawlers and trawler-men working out of Newhaven, this book will appeal to all amateur fishermen, yachtsmen, and lovers of the sea generally, while to women readers its love interest is equally appealing."

The pages have resisted tanning, and the only foxing present is along the page edges and on the first and last few pages. There is also some light foxing on the pastedowns. Small strip of discolouration where the flyleaf has been in contact with the front pastedown, plus another on the half-title (possibly after a bookmark).
The dust jacket is unclipped (bears original price of 9s. 6d.) and is in relatively good condition. The only major defects being the loss at the front (see image) and 3 cm (1.2″) loss along the top at the back.

Rare to find in dust jacket.
