Book Description G. P. Putnam's Sons, New York, 1936. Hardcover. La Grange, Jacques (illustrator). Reprint. Second Impression. 381 p. Includes: illustrations, index, bibliography. Thirty-seven wood engravings in full color. Illustrated endpapers. Over fifty pen-and-ink drawings and plans of ships. Appendices of technical details, elements of naval architecture and the art of shipbuilding, spar dimensions, abstract logs and other features. The engravings were printed under the personal supervision of the artist. From Wikipedia: "A clipper was a very fast sailing ship of the middle third of the 19th century. They were fast, yachtlike vessels, with three masts and a square rig. They were generally narrow for their length, could carry limited bulk freight, small by later 19th century standards, and had a large total sail area. Clipper ships were mostly constructed in British and American shipyards, though France, Brazil, the Netherlands and other nations also produced some. Clippers sailed all over the world, primarily on the trade routes between the United Kingdom and its colonies in the east, in trans-Atlantic trade, and the New York-to-San Francisco route round Cape Horn during the California Gold Rush. Dutch clippers were built beginning in the 1850s for the tea trade and passenger service to Java. The boom years of the clipper ship era began in 1843 as a result of the growing demand for a more rapid delivery of tea from China. It continued under the stimulating influence of the discovery of gold in California and Australia in 1848 and 1851, and ended with the opening of the Suez Canal in 1869." Translated from the French Wikipedia: "Jacques Lagrange ( born in Paris July 28, 1917, died in July 1995) was a French painter belonging to the New School of Paris. In 1937 he participated with Dufy decoration flag of the International Electricity Exhibition in Paris. Mobilized in Angers, he discovers the " Tapestry of the Apocalypse." Released and demobilized in 1944, Lagrange joined his workshop Arcueil. Guests at the first Salon de Mai in 1945, there then participates every year and exhibited at the Galerie de France Myriam Prevot and Gildo Caputo in 1946 and 1953. Completing a project old he went to Aubusson and performs in direct contact with artisans his first tapestry. His paintings are from 1955 regularly presented by the Villand Galanis and Gallery, with those of Chastel, Esteve Lapicque. Jacques Lagrange co-wrote Monsieur Hulot 's Holiday (1953), Uncle (1958) Playtime (1967), Traffic (1971) and Parade (1974 ) by Jacques Tati he met in 1945 and with whom he will not cease until his death in 1982 to work as artistic adviser. It also works with Jean Vilar in 1958 creating the sets and costumes for the NPT Ubu. Lagrange made ? ? several achievements included the monumental works of architect Edward Albert, a ceiling of 600 m2 for Croulebarbe Tower or Tour Albert ( 1957-1959 ), the first skyscraper in Paris, and a marble pavement ( 1967-1972 ) for the faculty of Jussieu including Jean Lescure provides epigraphy ( Einstein formula to Baudelaire sentence Gaston Bachelard ).
