A collection of 36 paintings of famous clipper ships along with accompanying historical notes, excerpted from the famous three-volume set, Sail: The Romance of the Clipper Ships, first published in 1927.

The text includes the history of each ship, along with lore and legend, and is itself a treasure for those who value stories of the sea. This single volume is a selection of the thirty-six most significant ships featured in the original three-volume set. Each featured ship is portrayed in a full-color full-page illustration along with the original text provided by Basil Lubbock.
