"Volume I of the Admiralty Manual of Seamanship is the basic book of seamanship for officers and men joining the Royal Navy but should prove useful to all who put to sea in ships and boats. The book describes many types of ship and their equipment; its scope has been widened to include ship safety and firefighting; man-made fibre cordage; more information on the handling and splicing of ropes; boats and their handling and sailing; and elements of the Rule of the Road sufficient for coxswains (helmsmen) of small boats.
Its chapters, and those of the more advanced Volumes II and III, have been arranged in four parts, 'Ship Knowledge and Safety', 'Seamanship', 'Ship Organisation' and 'Ship-handling and Navigation' in order that the reader may pursue any subject from one volume to another without difficulty."
