Riassunto: By the middle of the 17th century, a division was evident between the trade ship and the war ship. The Heyday of Sail documents the history of the merchant sailing ship during a revolutionary era in ship design. This volume includes merchant shipping in the British Empire, seagoing ships of the Netherlands, ships of Scandinavia, the Baltic, and the Mediterranean, European inland sailing craft, yachts and pleasure craft.
The ship is probably the most influential tool in human history and it continues to exert a widespread and persistent fascination. CONWAY'S HISTORY OF THE SHIP is the first comprehensive and authoritative account of this technological and cultural phenomenon.
An unprecedented line-up of over one hundred leading maritime historians and specialists from around the world has been assembled to ensure that the work is informative, authoritative and fully international in outlook.
Every significant ship type from the dawn of seafaring to the present day is analyzed in detailed and coherent essays. Each volume adopts a strong theme which allows it to stand alone, but throughout the series.
