Classic Sailing-Ship Models in Photographs Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Loving tribute to the often startlingly beautiful sailing vessels of a bygone age, charmingly depicted in over 120 handsome photographs and 28 drawings. Details of such meticulously crafted ships as a Flemish Carrack, c. 1450; the Norske Löve, 1634; the 90-gun Albemarle, 1680; a Venetian trading Galeass, 1726; a Dutch East Indiaman, c. 1740; and the Great Republic, an American clipper, 1853. For ship model enthusiasts, naval historians, and armchair mariners.

Book News Annotation:

This unabridged, slightly corrected replication of the 1924 Halton & Truscott Smith limited edition includes 124 b&w plates of ship models from circa 1450 to 1890 and a history of the ship-modeler's art. Lacks references and an index.
