Post Seamanship by S. B. Luce
CLICK HEREfor an on-line edition of "Text-book of Seamanship: The equipping and handling of vessels under sail or steam. For the use of the United States Naval Academy" by Stephen Bleecker Luce.

Although this is the US Navy and of a slightly later period, the basic information is interesting to read and there are some wonderful illustrations.

Thanks for the link. There's a downloadable version on the Google Books page. It's in Acrobat format, scanned from an original copy published in 1877. I just found it today. Search Full View Books on the Google Books page. There are several other books worth looking at that can be found this way.
