Description:
The scan depicts a manuscript created by Cedric Windas. It is a hand—made book, not published, or printed.

The cover is drawn in India ink with watercolor and the book's pages contain original drawings and text by Cedric Windas.

Content of the 121 page book includes definitions, diagrams and details on square—rigged sailing.
Explanation of Details:
The illustration of a square—rigged ship shows the many rectangular sails of the ship. That design was thought to catch more wind and increase sailing speed.

Highly visible in the scan is the sticky "scotch" tape used by Windas to affix his paper artwork to the book's hardcover binding.
