Howdy

First off, let me present myself, i'm Payador Perseguido, the owner of a metaphysical sailboat on a metaphysical ocean. Currently i'm 400 km of the nearest tad of ocean. Nonetheless, this will change in the future.

Because i don't have the resources to buy a sailboat for at least another 2-3 years, and even if i did, i would have to spend another good year actually learning how to dwell confortably in the good art of sailing. I thought - "maybe i can learn how to sail, how to read charts, how to tie knots, how to do this in accordance to that and how to do that in accordance to this, etc". So when i actually buy the boat, i won't be completely 100% green.

The big picture that i intend on paiting of myself, is this - to circumnavegate the world on a sailboat. Nothing new for you americans and europeans who do this on a daily basis. But something pretty odd and unusual for us south americans who'd seem to have forgotten where we came from, the ocean.

Because every journey starts with the first leg, i plan starting mine reading the account of the first person who went alone on the same journey i want to do. -Sailing Alone Around the World by Joshua Slocum-

Thing is, i was told there is a copy that has pictures, diagrams, charts and etc. But the website i'm buying it doesn't tell which edition has what.

To the question, can you guys inform me which is the most comprehensive and complete edition of the book i mentioned?
I'll provide the link to the website, already with the "paperback filter" on. A reminder, it is in portuguese.
All i want to know is, look at the picture and say "Hey, i have this edition over here and it has everything this guy is asking for". If thats possible and if i'm not misled to believe there is such edition.

Thanks!
