This wonderful book features the drawings of the hugely talented C.F. Tunnicliffe. Published in 1941 by Cambridge University Press, this is a hardback book of 70 pages. The dust jacket is missing but the cover illustration itself is simply stunning, and hints at the quality of the drawings within which beautifully compliment the text. The title describes it as a 'Book for Children' but really this is a collectors item, or a perfect gift for anyone who loves the sea, or traditional book illustration like I do. There is light foxing to the pages but the book is in good condition otherwise. For more information or photographs, please get in touch.

    The Bladnoch shop is currently closed.

    Online orders are being fulfilled as normal, but please allow extra time for posting as I am making less frequent trips to the Post Office.

    If your order is urgent, please get in touch.


    The Bladnoch shop has on-street parking outside. Accessed from the pavement, there is a small step of 3cm and then the threshold of 2cm height.

    The door width is 71cm.

    The shop is on one level, with shelves at various heights - staff will be very happy to assist in passing customers any items they wish to handle.

    Although the shop is small, there is room to manoeuvre a wheelchair inside.
