A new selection in the Anatomy of the Ship series, Tudor Warship Mary Rose is a unique insight into the architecture and construction of the iconic ship of the Tudor period. This comprehensive reference includes over 200 scale drawings detailing every part of the ship's interior and exterior from heel to masthead. As with other books in the series, Tudor Warship Mary Rose is a radical departure from the usual monograph approach, instead providing conventional ship plans as well as explanatory perspective views with fully descriptive keys.

In addition to describing the ship's structure and anatomy, McElvogue also utilizes archaeology to trace the development and career of Henry VIII's famous warship while placing it in the context of wider developments in shipbuilding. This book will surely appeal to model makers, historians, archaeologists, and enthusiasts alike.

Douglas McElvogue was a senior research fellow at the Mary Rose Trust and specializes in maritime archaeological reconstructions.

Review:

Containing more interpretation of the hull and working of the ship than any publication to date, this book includes a huge mount of very detailed historical, iconographic and archaeological information. The author has interpreted the recovered structure to make it fit the Mary Rose illustrated by Anthony Anthony in 1546. The numerous scale drawings are augmented by technical illustrations with a descriptive index and explanatory views. The number of concepts covered in detail is impressive; all aspects of the ship and how she worked and fought are included, together with a history of the ship and description of life on board. For anyone interested in how the Mary Rose worked, it is a must * Alexzandra Hildred, Archaeologist and Curator of Ordnance at The Mary Rose Trust * Tudor Warship Mary Rose is a unique insight into the architecture and construction of the iconic ship of the Tudor period * Quarterdeck * Tudor Warship Mary Rose provides valuable graphical representation of Mary Rose. Technical plans are supported with copies of paintings and artefacts as well as explanatory views. * Trinity House Flash magazine *
