1 Smith, Waldo E.L. Foreword by Rear Admiral H.F. Pullen. THE NAVY AND ITS CHAPLAINS IN THE DAYS OF SAIL.
Ryerson, Toronto, 1961, first edition. 
197 pp, 8vo (8 5/8" H), hard cover in dust jacket. "In the days of sail the sailor met his God upon the sea, for it was here that he was most aware of Him as Ruler of the elements. Towards this God he showed respect. But religion was a limited fo rce for those whose lives were hardened by discomfort, exposure to cold and wet, wretched food, medical neglect and harsh discipline. Chaplains with insight came to understand the Navy's own moral code and used it to build upon. On some sh i p s t h e y were welcomed. On others they had to overcome indifference and, sometimes, open hostility. Waldo Smith recaptures here the flavour of this rugged bygone era." Very light edge wear on boards, small light soiling mark on top of text b lo ck , l ig ht w rinkling at top/bottom of spine. Dust jacket has several small chips and tears - some with creses, light browning, light soiling, light water staining on lower half and on spine. Very Good/Good-
