The 19th century is popularly regarded as the century of the clippers, the magnificent fast sailing vessels which bore witness to the flowering of ship design and building married to the ability of sailors to wring the utmost from wind and water.There were, however, other types of vessel whose trade and economic viability depended on speed, The fruit schooners, packet ships and small opium-runners are only some, and they play just as important a part in the story of the development of the fast sailing ship. Profusely illustrated with photographs, plans, & drawings, this book is now recognised as the definitive work on the subject. Bookseller Inventory # 7308

Book Description Conway Maritime Press Ltd, London, 1988. Hardback. Book Condition: mINT. Dust Jacket Condition: Mint. Revised & Expanded Edition. FAST SAILING SHIPS Their Design and Construction 1775 - 1875 David R. MacGregor. Conway Maritime Publishing, London 1988 Revised Edition ISBN 9780851774527 320pp Illustrated Hardback. This mint unread copy is bound in cloth covered boards with bright gilt titling to the spine, tight, white, bright and square. The unclipped dust wrapper is also in mint condition. From a massive corpus of raw material, the author traces the development of merchant ships, from the small smacks to the great wood clippers. He describes the economic and legal influences on their design, the effects of the changing materials from wood through composite construction to iron and steel, and the changing roles of the builders and naval architects. From all this material emerges a fascinating history of the shipping industry as a whole. First published in 1973, Fast Sailing Ships received the best book of Sea Award for its important contribution to our knowledge of 19th century maritime history. This edition, revised and expanded, brings back into print a book now recognised as the definite work on this subject.
