A Short History of the Sailing Ship (Dover Maritime) by Romola Anderson, R. C. Anderson

The most concise book on the history of sail.--Literary Review Heartily recommended to the reader.--Boston Transcript This amply illustrated book, written in nontechnical language, traces the evolution of the sailing ship over the course of 6,000 years--from those of ancient Egypt and Crete (4000-1000 B.C.) to the full-rigged clipper ships of the 19th century. The development of northern and southern European vessels is described, as well as the technical and cultural factors behind their change in form and function. No history of sail has ever presented the subject more authoritatively or enjoyably than this critically praised book. 20 halftones and 134 figures.
