Book Description Jean Boudriot Publications, East Sussex, UK, 1992. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: good +. Limited ed. 472 pp; facsimilie edition of one of the rarest English books on shipbuilding orignally printed in 1788 and probably limited to no more that 200 copies. This facsimile edition was limited to 750 copies; this copy being No. 86. THE SHIPBUILDER'S REPOSITORY contains all the principal dimensions and scantlings for every type of vessel in the Royal Navy in the late 1780's. It was freely plagiarised by Steel, in his ELEMENTS AND PRACTICE OF NAVAL ARCHITECTURE of 1805, and was a major inspiration to William Hackett in his design of the U.S. frigate ESSEX. In its day, the REPOSITORY was no doubt considered by its readers as a useful if prosaic work, more of a compilation than of any real originality. However, for the modern student of shipbuilding of the last quarter of the 18th century, such faint praise is undoubtedly inappropriate, for the book is a precious mine of information which in many case one would have to search long and hard in various archives to find. It may be that the book would have been better known today had it contained the complete set of draughts as intended; the only draught which in fact appeared was that of a proposed 80-gun ship, which was never built. Consequently, the publishers have sought to remedy this situation by including an extensive selection of draughts; reprinted from the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich: ROYAL SOVEREIGN, IMPREGNABLE, BRUNSWICK, STANDARD, ASSURANCE, LATONIA, FLORA, SOLEBAY, THISBE, PORCUPINE, WEAZLE, ROYAL CHARLOTTE, DENMARK, and ORESTES.
