LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:
Orbis Publishing, London 1978 1st Edition. It began 5,000 years ago, on the banks of the Nile, with the funeral ship of a distant Pharaoh. At first, ship propulsion was largely a matter of sweated labour, but gradually the oared ship gave way to the sailing ship. With progress in ship design, voyages became longer and more adventurous. The result was the discovery of new lands and an upsurge in maritime trade, calling for new types of ship to carry and protect it. Then in the 1800's, seafaring was transformed by the twin revolutions of steam power and iron construction. Today, still less than half a century since the demise of the last great sail trading vessels, we are in the age of the hovercraft, container ship and nuclear submarine. Nicked dust jacket over blue cloth covered end boards. Very good condition. 288pp. 295 x 230 mm
