McKay (1810-1880) was a 19th century ship-building genius who brought the American clipper ship and other vessels to what some consider the acme of perfection. This is an unabridged and slightly altered republication of the work originally published by G.P. Putnam's Sons, New York, in 1928 under the title Some Famous Sailing Ships and Their Builder Donald McKay which was written by one of the great builder's descendants. Includes 58 b&w illustrations and four in color.
