I read an original copy at my junior high school library. Finally I have my own.

This is a handsomely-produced reprint of the 1939 edition of the well-known naval annual. It is an interesting volume for collectors and naval enthusiasts, though difficult to obtain these days. (I recall finding an original edition in a library over 30 years ago -- those are probably unobtainable at any price!)

One usually does not "read" what is, in form, a reference book. This book, however, should be read -- and read with care. The information in this book is often erroneous. It was prepared on the eve of the Second World War, from the best publicly-available data concerning the warships of the world. As such, it reflects the statistics and information that the world's navies wanted foreign powers to believe, rather than the factual reality of ship designs. Thus, much of the information concerning the Imperial Japanese Navy is incorrect, whereas data on American warships is more accurate.

Paradoxically, the "errors" -- the differences between the published data and the actual designs of the ships -- render this book interesting. It is nevertheless important that potential purchasers understand what the '39 Edition of Jane's is and what it is not. It is a portrait of a world on the brink of disaster, asea in roiling misinformation. It is not a true reference book.
