Categoría: SKU: 9781848322950


This book is one of a series that uses the best models from the incomparable collection of the National Maritime Museum to tell the story of specific ship types – in this case, the evolution of the cruising ship under sail. Each volume reproduces a large number  of model photos, all in full colour, including many close-up and details views, These are captioned in depth, but many are also annotated to focus attentionon interesting or unusual features. Although pictorial in emphasis, the book weaves the pictures into an authoritative text, producing an unusual and attractive form of technical history.
