The 6000-year history of the sailing ship, from the primitive craft of the Bronze Age to the modern high-tech yacht, depicted in 1000 scale drawings.
Every major step in this development of the sailing ship is illustrated with highly detailed drawings. The ships are organised by period and theme and a concise but detailed text describes each one and points up the salient features of every vessel.
