The History of Shipsby Peter Kemp
The scope of this book includes merchantmen and men-of-war, ceremonial, pleasure and working craft of all civilizations and all ages, as well as the people who built and sailed them. The full grandeur of the subject is captured in more than 250 magnificent color photographs while individual two-page sections are devoted to topics of special interest in each period, such as navigation of the development of the Dreadnought battleship. Of special note are the twelve superb reconstructions of vessels that were milestones in the history of ships and indeed the history of man.
