Notes
  • "This story of the voyage of the four-masted barque Parma in the grain 'race' of the last of the sailing-ships from Australia to the English channel completes the picture which I set out to give of the graceful wind ships before the last of them departed--a picture which was begun in 'Falmouth for orders' and continued in 'By way of cape Horn'."--Foreword.
  • London edition (G. Bles) has title: Voyage of the "Parma."
