Full title: Flags at Sea: A guide to the flags flown at sea by British and some foreign ships, from the 16th century to the present day, illustrated from the collections of the National Maritime Museum

Fair number of photographs, drawings and illustrations, some in colour. Sections on British, U.S., Spanish, Dutch and French maritime flags as well as a little on signalling and the making of flags. Plus an extensive bibliography of 198 titles.
David Prothero, 5 May 1997

I can’t imagine anyone with a serious interest in the history of flags who would not want to buy it. Among the unexpected goodies is the best bibliography of early flag books and charts I’ve seen and a great glossary of flag terms.
Norm Martin, 05 Jul 1999

I really like this book. There are a couple of superb flag charts in there as well — one being the Napoleonic chart, if I recall correctly.
David Cohen, 06 Jul 1999

The only difference between 1986 and a 1999 “edition” ([wil99] or [wil99a]), is the cover picture, the transfer of black and white diagrams on the first and last fly pages to un-numbered pages in the text, and an un-numbered page of Classified Bibliography Addenda. There is no reference in the 1999 edition to any earlier editions other than the original 1986 edition. It seems likely that the FI Reading List has a typo with 1989 instead of 1999 (or 1986).

Title: Flags at Sea
Medium: book
Main author(s): Timothy Wilson
Edition (publisher: place): United States Naval Institute: Annapolis (United States)
Language: English
Edition date: 1999
Previous edition: [wil99a]
Catalogue codes: ISBN 1-55750-296-X = ISBN 978-1-55750-296-4
Pages: 121
Format: 245×190 mm

Remarks: paperback; US+Canada edition.

The text deals with the flags of Great Britian (in depth) and the United States, the Netherlands, Spain and France. Excellent information regarding the evolution of the British ensigns used at sea. Includes color and black and white reproductions of flag charts and notebooks dating from 1685. Extensive bibliographies and glossary.
Phil Nelson, Nov 1999

This is a revised edition of a popular history, first published in 1986, of the flags flown at sea during the Age of Sail. Beautifully illustrated with more than one hundred thirty photographs — seventy-four in color — it features the flags flown by the principal naval powers — Great Britain, France, the Netherlands, Spain, and the United States. The clear narrative unravels myths and misunderstandings about where, when, and why certain flags — like the piratical “Jolly Roger” — were flown. It also tackles such complicated issues as signaling in peace and war. Contemporary flag charts and specially commissioned drawings provide the degree of detail necessary for modelmakers, artists, and historians. The remarkable amount of information presented on the all-important functions of identification and signaling at sea makes an important contribution to the literature.
quoted by David Cohen, 04 Oct 1999

The only difference between 1986 and a 1999 “edition”, is the cover picture, the transfer of black and white diagrams on the first and last fly pages to un-numbered pages in the text, and an un-numbered page of Classified Bibliography Addenda.
