Ships of the world
Click for larger picture

 

Ships of the world is a comprehensive and highly readable encyclopedia describing more that a thousand of the world's best known and most significant vessels of every size and type from the earliest times through to the present day. The book covers not only some of the most famous names in maritime history, including celebrated warships, cruise-liners, commercial vessels and ships of discovery, but also note-worthy craft that merit attention simply by their amazing utility and improbable achievements.
Some ships are included because they disappeared in mysterious circumstances, while others appear because of the incredible seafaring and navigational skills of their masters. In addition to actual ships and boats, the fictional vessels such as African Wueen, Red October and the Ship of Fools are included.
Each ship is described in a vivid entry capturing its personality and outlining its physical characteristics, construction and history, from the drawing board to the scrap-yard or museum.

Charting the development of one of the greatest and most influential of all human inventions, Ships of the World is not only an invaluable reference work, but also fascinating reading for anyone interested in maritime history.
