Cutty Sark - The Last of the Tea Clippers
Author: Kentley E.
Publisher: Adlard Coles
Pages count: 349
Description: An updated and expanded edition to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the iconic Cutty Sark. The narrative spans the ship's construction at Dumbarton in 1869; her famous tea voyages as well as those with other cargoes; her career under a Portuguese flag; her subsequent return to the Thames, Greenwich; and the dramatic fire, painstaking restoration, and glorious reopening in April 2012.
The book has been developed from the outset with the Cutty Sark Trust. It presents a chronological career narrative but includes detailed features on crew accounts, log entries, pieces on seamanship, ports and cargoes, and broader tall ship culture, as well as an opportunity to focus on artifacts and the fittings of the ship. This unique opportunity allows the first publication of specially commissioned photography created as part of, and subsequent to, the clipper's restoration as well as the findings of resulting research.
