This is the first of two volumes dealing with the history of the merchant ship in the 19th and 20th centuries, and it is the fifth volume in a projected set of 12 on the broader subject of the history of the ship. The introduction of steam into the merchant fleets of the world was a profound technical revolution; the various stages of technical development and the economic factors that drove that revolution are thoroughly and meticulously detailed. Abundantly illustrated (b&w). Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
