A lively and entertaining account of the three types of women one might have found, legally or illegally, on board an English ship during the 18th and 19th centuries, i. e. prostitutes, officer’s and midshipmen’s wives and other female passengers, including mistresses, during peace or wartime; and women masquerading as sailors or crewmen. Colorful and entertaining, complete with verified factual accounts of surprising and little-known incidents drawn from letters written by sailors and other men at sea; including the diary of Admiral Horatio Nelson. Factual accounts also from autobiographies written in the late 1700s by women such as Mary Lacy, who took to the sea masquerading as men, and who lived to tell of their experiences. Bibliographical sources also included.
