'Pleasure boating in the victorian era: an anthology of some of the more enterprising vayages made in pleasure boats on inland waterways during the nineteenth century' by P.A.L. Vine
Published by Phillimore & Co., 1983.
Abstract: This book is an anthology of stories about the Victorians' love of pleasure boating. It describes the adventures of a number of well-known men and women who enjoyed rowing for a variety of reasons from the excitement of exploring the unkown to the joy of family excursions. P.A.L. Vine draws his information from the journals written by these rowers. He also provides background information and biographical details of his subjects to provide an in-depth picture of the Victorians afloat.
