Illustrated with 1000 scale drawings, this book depicts the whole 6000-year history of the sailing ship from the Bronze Age to the present. From the earliest known craft of ancient Mesopotamia and Egypt, via the great age of European expansion, to the final surviving sailing ships of this century every major step in the development of the sailing ship is illustrated - and reproduced to standard scales to make comparisons both easy and meaningful. Organised by period and theme, the text describes each ship type and points up the salient features of every vessel.
