Previous Editions to the 1902 Bluejacket’s Manual
Since 1902 was the first edition, there were no previous Bluejacket’s Manuals.
However, many texts and publications were used to create this first edition.
As I receive the titles of these publications, I will add them to this list.
1889 “Costers Inland Rules and Regulations”
