Odd Craft, Complete - 
"Mr. Jacobs serenely continues to distribute wholesome food for laughter. These characters elicit fresh admiration for the inexhaustible inventions of their creator."--Spectator. 

Night Watches, Complete - 
A new volume of this favorite humorist's most delightful stories of seamen, longshoremen, and people of sea towns. 


A Master of Craft- 
Hilarious tale of the complications and embarrassments pursuing the captain of a small English coasting vessel in his simultaneous love affairs. 

Many Cargoes (1896)- 
Amusing short stories chiefly concerning English sailors. 

At Sunwich Port (1902)- 
"It is a delightful book, with plenty of clean, wholesome humor, calculated to better the reader's appetite and make him sleep more soundly."--San Francisco Argonaut. 

Captains All and Others (1909)- 
"It is a book for tired mortals, refreshing as a breath of sea air."--Public Opinion. 



Dialstone Lane (1902)- 
"He keeps his characters at cross purposes with one another until it seems impossible that he should ever be able to straighten out their affairs. But he is as ingenious as he is funny, and the climax to his farce is in truth nothing less than masterly--it is so unexpected, so natural, and so uproarously funny." New York Tribune. 

Light Freights (1901)- 
Genuinely humorous short stories of English sailors on and off their ships. "Ginger" and Peter Russet reappear in several. 

Salthaven (1908)- 
Spirited story of life in a little English seaport town, of shipbuilding and love, full of adventure and rollicking fun. 


Short Cruises (1906)- 
Humorous tales of seafaring men, longshoremen and their adventures. 

"In the dozen tales contained in 'Short Cruises' he shows that the stream of humor is flowing as freshly as ever. He is at his best. . . . The final story in the volume takes its place beside 'Brugglesmith' as an epic in intoxication."--;New York Sun.
