"First published in 1934, this outstanding study of shipbuilding in the Venetian republic, when it was at the height of its power and greatness, has never been surpassed or replaced as the definitive work." -- Lloyd's List
"Even the technical details of shipbuilding and shipyards are made interesting and the rivalries between boatbuilders add color to the story, paralleling the obsessions and occasional dishonesties of modern yachtsmen in search of a world cup. The book is important in the history of shipbuilding, in the history of labor, and in the story of trade and culture." -- L. R. N. Ashley, Bibliotheque d'Humanisme et Renaissance
