This set of two books is a worthy addition to the library.

Format: HardcoverVerified Purchase. I've been a wooden ship modeller for a good number of years and will allways be after more information. This set of two books is a worthy addition to the library. As one progresses in ship-building, with enough reading and building, many of those weird questions we inflict upon ourselves gain a fair measure of resolution indirectly. This book is a good dual-use book. One can learn things subconsciously and details, with me, tend to stick in my ageing mind.

This definitive work is a major step forward in the study of the sailing warship. For the first time, the development of the line-of-battle ship is described precisely, in terms of individual ships and classes, highlighting the factors influencing specific changes in design. This sophisticated approach allows the author to tackle a great many myths-such as the static nature of eighteenth century design, or the pre-eminence of French naval architecture-and his conclusions challenge the accepted view in many areas of naval history. For the enthusiast and academic historian alike, The Ship of the Line is essential reading for a better understanding of the navy in the age of sail.Volume II is devoted to technical developments in hull design, construction, rigging, armament and fittings.
