Vintage Sailing Book: The Lore of Ships

Like this item?

Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.


This is a truly fascinating book for anyone with an interest in sailing, boating, sea trade, fishing or naval warfare. First published in 1963 by an international group of experts, the book contains over 1,500 illustrations of every aspect of every kind of ship ever built, from primitive dugouts to nucear submarines. The drawings are detailed and technical, and include, for example, forms of rigging and sailmaking, propulsion, fishing, gunnery, navigation and lighthouses.

The dust jacket has a few small tears, and the cover has a little fading at the top. The pages are clean and in good condition, with just a hint of yellowing around the edges.
