This is the first detailed study of buttons used by British yacht and rowing clubs, covering a period of some two hundred years. The book will be of interest to members of yacht and boat clubs, as well as to collectors needing information on identity, age, and values of these early buttons. Descriptions and illustrations are included for nearly a hundred and eighty buttons, used by nearly a hundred and sixty clubs. The study gives brief histories of individual organisations, and includes many useful appendices for identifying and dating buttons. Many of the buttons are illustrated and described for the first time in print.
