    If you build model sailing ships of the 17th & 18th century this is the book for you

    This book shows quite clearly how the rigging was done. It does it in drawings rather than text which unless you are a learned shipwright will probably not understand half of what you read. Excellent drawings, very clear and I recommend this book to anyone building model sailing ships, or full size for that matter.
