Two Years Before The Mast. Richard Henry Dana, Arthur Rackham.
“Notwithstanding all that has been said about the beauty of a ship under full sail, there are very few who have ever seen a ship, literally, under all her sail. With all her sails, light and heavy, and studding sails, on each side, alow and aloft, she is the most glorious moving object in the world.”
