Foolscap folio. 166pp, frontis portrait and two colour plates (tipped-in), other illustrations, endpaper maps. SOFT COVERS (see below). A very good clean copy. ISBN 0908528035 ***The Tregurtha Log was issued in an edition of 600 numbered copies, signed by the editor, printed on quality paper and case-bound in buckram with dustwrapper. This soft-cover version, identical in content but printed on lesser quality paper (and neither numbered nor signed) was one of a handful produced with the sole purpose of qualifying the publication for the government subsidy ('printing bounty') then in operation, and was never issued for sale.
