About This Item

London: Sidgwick and Jackson, 1988. SIGNED BY AUTHOR 'NIGEL ROBERTS QE2' without dedication. A near Fine unmarked copy (Fine apart from age darkening to page edges). English dustjacket is Fine and price clipped ALSO INCLUDED is the Japanese dustjacket which is also Signed twice on the inner front flap, once in gold ink with Yokohama '89, and a blind embossed stamp on inner front flap 'purchased on board the Queen Elizabeth 2'. The rear of the Japanese dustjacket shows the QE2, Concorde and 9 planes. xxix + 226 pages. 38 illustrations. First reprint November 1988 (first was September). The author was Chief Medical Officer on the QE2 and other great Cunard ships for 12 years, responsible for the health of almost 3,000 passengers and crew. C-Six is the C stairway on 6 deck, positioned, as most ships' hospitals are, directly on the waterline at the centre of the ship to afford maximum stability and comfort, hence ironically but appropriately the address of the world most prestigious sick bay. These memoirs contain, naturally, medical emergencies, tales such as dentistry on a celebrity drunk, stories of chronic seasickness, acute appendicitis, drownings and a coronary in the casino. There is a large social side to his duties as he hosts a table slightly lower down from the Captain's, and his anecdotes about passengers are both affectionate and amusing. It is also an insight into how the systems of such a ship spring into action whenever a medical crisis arises. L. Signed by Author. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Fine. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
