About this title


In 1992 it was 500th anniversary of Christopher Columbus's discovery of the American continent. Conway's "Anatomy of The Ship" series marked the occasion with the publication of this volume detailing his three ships the "Nina", "Pinta" and the "Santa Maria".

About the Author:

Xavier Pastor is one of Spain's leading maritime historians. He has spent many years gathering material on the coastal working craft of Spain, and is a fine modelmaker and draughtsman. He has produced numerous plans of Spanish small craft, and has been a regular contributor to Model Shipwright and other nautical journals. Widely recognised as an authority on the 15th century Mataro nao, he was closely involved with the Spanish reconstruction of the ships of Columbus for the 500th anniversary of the European discovery of America.
