Description: This book is an outstanding reference work for anyone desiring detailed information on English (or Colonial American) warship construction. It is profusely illustrated with crisp line drawings and black-and-white photographs of both models and the few preserved period warships still in existence. It covers every aspect of hull construction, from keel to bulwark rail, and describes in detail the many internal and external fittings.
The book covers hull framing (including the various "systems" devised and used by the Royal Navy), the construction and placement of bulkheads and partitions, and internal furniture such as pumps, capstans, galley, etc. For example, this is the only book I have found that discusses the construction and use of the "portable" bulkheads used to partition off cabins on the various gun decks. Great attention is paid to changes and improvements over the years, along with approximate dates at which these changes became generally accepted.
However, the most unique aspect of this work is the provision of extensive tables and formulae which allow accurate reconstruction of the dimensions and placement of the many hull components, for a wide range of ship sizes and types. In my opinion it is this, more than anything else, that makes this book especially valuable to the serious student of period naval architecture, or the avid ship model builder.
