The Anatomy of Nelson's Ships - C. Nepean Longridge

Percival Marshall, 1955, Hardback ..
Condition: Good. An adequate reading copy only. Gently bruised at the head, tail and corners of the binding. Leans slightly. Text complete, clean and tight.

Drawings designed by E. Bowness and executed by G. F. Campbell. Folding plans designed and executed by G. F. Campbell. Nelson’s history has been written from every possible angle, but this is not so with his ships. Such information as there is about the ships is buried in contemporary books on Naval Architecture; only the expert can sift it and present it in a usable form. In doing this, Dr. Longridge’s work becomes a veritable treasure trove for the naval historian and ship modeller. H.M.S. Victory is the supreme example of the ships of the period, and fortunately she is still in existence. The original draughts of 1765 have been preserved, as have also the drawings used in the restoration of the ship in 1922.
