OceanographyReidy’s writing brings his actors, their story, and this time period to life. The volume itself is beautifully made, with over 60 figures that do much more than illustrate. Photographs and drawings of imperiled and wrecked ships remind modern readers of the overarching importance of tides to a sea-borne economy and society. Tide tables and self-registering tidegauge tracings help explain the origins and power of co-tidal maps. The press is to be commended for the high-quality illustrations, the brief but helpful glossary, and the useful bibliography.
