HARBOURS. - A Copy of the Report of the Harbour of Refuge Commission of 1846, on the several modes of construction ... copies of the papers connected therewith.

London, House of Commons 1847. Foolscap modern wrapper; 52pp, one plate and some small illustrations through the text. Docket title on the last page. ¶ A stormy commission; one that could well have used a harbour of refuge. While this, the third commission in a few years, finally saw work begun, two of the commissioners refused to sign the report and got truly cranky when the Commission refused to record their dissent. That takes up the first few pages here and the dissent of Sir Howard Douglas several more. Then we have reports and evidence given by the giants of civil engineering - John and George Rennie, Cubitt, Alan Stevenson - followed by reports from America on the Delaware breakwater and France on Cherbourg.
