'Boleh' by Robin Kilroy: dust jacket, sleeve and PDF copy of book
A photocopy of the dust jacket and sleeve of the book ‘Boleh’, written by Robin A. Kilroy. Robin Kilroy was the man who designed and built the unique junk yacht in Singapore in 1948-1949.
Robin Kilroy was commissioned to write the book ‘Boleh’ on his return to the UK. Here are the images of the original dust jacket, one of very few that survived the wear and tare.
The book is an account of the designing, building and first voyage of Boleh. Most of the narrative of the book is taken from diaries kept by Peter Aplin, who was one of the original crew members on Boleh’s historic voyage from Singapore to Salcombe in the UK.
