Publisher Comments:

Like the Visual Encyclopedia series, Visual Encyclopedia of Ships is chronological guide to more than 1000 of the most important ships from the earliest times to the present day. From the Viking longship through the 16th century galleon to the super carriers and nuclear submarines of the twenty first century.

This book includes every conceivable type of ship in which man has gone to sea. As well as warships from every century, this book also examines those vessels that have explored the globe, conducted trade, and afforded great adventure, luxury and entertainment. From the smallest coastal traders up to the vast oil traders of today, from the graceful clippers of the nineteenth century to modern passenger lines. This is a comprehensive guide to all the world's ships, both military and civilian.

Each ship is illustrated with a profile illustration, accompanied by brief details and specifications, and vessels are arranged chronologically to allow easy comparisons. With 1000 outstanding color illustrations, this book is an essential reference guide for all maritime and ship enthusiasts.
