On offer is a superb, unique, original 1905 French midshipman's manuscript logbook handwritten by 24 year old Hippolyte Joseph Vial. While in many ways this French Frigate's log is a classic midshipman's journal filled with the technical data compiled for centuries by eager men who served aboard a ship of War but the depth and breadth of the well filled journal represents and throughout iterates the talent and 'old salt' nature of Vial who is on the verge of his Lieutenancy and a mere four years from his own command has for the naval life; the 142 page folio book contains 24 hand drawn maps in colored pencil done and further littered with drawing and illustrations with a super eye of a man that will serve his country for nearly 40 years at sea and one day win the Legion of Honour. EDITOR'S NOTE: In our years of handling many 100s of nautical logbooks this is the first time we have seen a French Naval manuscript book.
