Heave Ho!- the Little Book of Seasickness

Anyone who has had a rough ferry crossing, fishing trip or outing in a boat will recall that overwhelming feeling that death is just around the corner, and the horrible phenomenon of seasickness has been intriguing doctors, philosophers, writers and politicians ever since humans first ventured out to sea. This retro little gift book is filled with amusing, outrageous and downright odd quotes from the likes of Dickens, Byron and Disraeli, as well as genuine but bizarre extracts from early physicians' reports and medical journals, covering all aspects of this ‘peculiar affliction’. H/B 96 Pages
