Riassunto: A period that is commonly presented as a long, drawn out battle between sail and steam, this volume - the sixth in an ambitious series - sets out to prove that this was not the case and that shipowners, far from seeing the two types as irreconcilable rivals, invested in one or the other according to the usual commercial evaluation of potential risks and rewards.

Descrizione libro Lodon: Conway Martime Press, 1993. Englisches Produkt in englischer Sprache // The Merchant Sailing Ship 1830-1930 During the nineteenth century sailing ships improved dramatically in design and construction, and in the sophistication of their fittings; they benefited from many of the same technological developments that helped the advance of the steamship, and they contioued to grow in total numbers well into the second half of the century; in 1860 there was still ten times more sailing tonnage an the British register than steam. The period is popularty presented as a long ilrawn out battle between sail and steam.This volume shows how this was not the case and that shipowners, far from seeing the two types as irreconcilable rivals, invcsted in onc or the other according to the usual commercial evaluation of potential risks and rewards. Only with the deveiopment of cost-effectivc machinery at the end of the century did the sailing ship cease to be a viable ocean carrier - and a few tightly managed companies still operated Ulan at a profit evcn in the 1930s. ?bis volume imluder The Wooden Sailing Ship: Over 300Tons Thc Wooden Sailing Ship: Under 300Tons The Transition to Iron and Steel Construction The Iron and Steel Sailing Ship The Merchant Sailing Vessel in theltventleth Century The Schooner in America Schooner Development in Britain The Sailing Ship in the Baltic The Changing Problems of Shiphandling Bibliography Glossary Index V15607E12 ISBN 0785814167 WICHTIGER HINWEIS zu den Versandpauschalen: Bücher mit einer Gewichtsangabe ab 1001 g kosten 5,90 €.
