Nearly Wordless Wednesday: Naval Regulations, 1802 edition

One thing I love about old books is the deep impression left on the page by each letter of the press. Don't you want to run your fingers over this page and feel the letters? Thankfully, this book is behind glass at the U.S. Naval Academy Museum and won't be ruined by the likes of me and my itchy fingers.
Read about Edward Preble here.
