On offer is a superb group of five  manuscript books encompassing the history of submarines and underwater naval warfare from 1901 through to 1971. The books were handwritten and compiled in cloth covered, hard bound books by British submarine authority Leslie Honeywill who was a Chief Engine Room Artificer [CERA] or a plumber as he jokingly called himself, on a number of submarines. These are not finished published books but bound manuscripts that contain corrections, amendments, highlighting for emphasis or when the type print was too light. Adding even further depth there are tucked and tipped in one of a kind access original photos, postcards and news clippings all relating to Submarines. Very comprehensive, Honeywill used a wide variety of sources [over 100 referenced] covering 70 years of naval history besides the breadth of his own hands on experience and personal knowledge. Historians, researchers and collectors of naval history will find a superb primary source as few people on earth had the experience or other qualities needed to record this history with such authority. The volumes are split as follows: 1. 1901 - 1911; 2. 1911 - 1919; 3. 1919 - 1939; 4. 1939 - 1945 and 5. 1946 - 1971. [We offer separately Honeywill's his biography 'SHUT OFF FROM DIVING 1923-1945 The Ramblings of a Plumber' - 0002027; book titled 'PERISCOPE PERSONALITIES 1901-1972' - 0002029 and another book titled 'SUBMARINE DEPOT SHIPS BASES & SUPPORT SHIPS' - 0002028.] Overall VG.
