Description: In this classic review, the author has created 80 line illustrations of some of history's most important sailing ships, beginning with a graceful Egyptian galley (c. 1600 B.C.) and ending with a splendid five-masted clipper ship of 1921. Also depicted are a Roman trireme, a Viking longship, a 16th-century caravel, an East Indiaman of 1750, an early 19th-century brigantine, a New Bedford whaling bark, as well as dozens of lesser-known vessels, among them the "Galleass", "Carrack", "Buss" and "Flute". A detailed meticulously researched text for each vessel has been provided. Softcover.
