This was the first book about Thames Barges, now back in print after 100 years, with much additional material and the original secret locations and craft revealed. Hailed as a classic work of literature, this beautifully produced and bound book is available only in a hand numbered limited edition of 500 copies of which just a handful remain.

‘No author describes the tides or the nature of light on water better than Ionides. This book is produced to a quality rare and elusive in publishing today.’
Sailing Today

‘Fine writing and beautifully produced, this is too good to miss. If any book deserves the epithet ‘classic’ this one certainly does.’
