9781844862757: Tudor Warship Mary Rose (Anatomy of The Ship)

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.

About the Author:

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 *

Book Description Bloomsbury Publishing PLC, United Kingdom, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The great warship the Mary Rose was built between 1509 and 1511 and served 34 years in Henry VIII s navy before catastrophically sinking in the Battle of the Solent on 19 July 1545. A fighting platform and sailing ship, she was the pride of the Tudor fleet. Yet her memory passed into undeserved oblivion - until the remains of this magnificent flagship were dramatically raised to the surface in 1982 after 437 years at the bottom of the Solent. Part of the bestselling Conway Anatomy of The Ship series, Tudor Warship Mary Rose provides the finest possible graphical representation of the Mary Rose. Illustrated with a complete set of scale drawings, this book contains technical plans as well as explanatory views, all with fully descriptive keys. Douglas McElvogue uses archaeological techniques to trace the development and eventful career of Henry VIII s gunship, while placing it in the context of longer-term advances in ship construction. This volume features: -The first full archaeological reconstruction of the Mary Rose, as she would have appeared when built and when she sank. -The concepts behind the building of the ship, along with consideration of the materials used and her fitting-out and manning. -The ship s ordnance, including muzzle loaders, breech loaders, firearms, bows,staff weapons, bladed weapons and fire pots. -Analysis of the contemporary descriptions of the Mary Rose s sailing characteristics and ship handling, whether general sailing, heavy weather sailing, anchoring, mooring, stemming the tide or riding out storms. -A service history of the Mary Rose examining the campaigns of the vessel: the battles she was involved in, when she held station in the Channel and the periods in which she was laid up.
