Originally published in 1930, this is a wonderfully detailed look at the history of the Sailing Ship in the nineteenth century. Packed with photos and anecdotes, every major ship and Captain of the day is examined in depth. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive.
