Bonanza Books New York. A reprint of the 1935 original. Illustrations by The author. G. C. Whales and Henry Rusk. This is the first complete history ever published of the development of the various types of sailing vessels and rigs in America from the earliest Colonial craft down to and including modern racing and cruising yachts. For more than three hundred years ships have been built on the coasts, rivers, and lakes of America. From the time of the American Revolution up to the clipper-ship era, the ship types developed on this continent had a modifying influence, if indeed they did not revolutionise ship construction all over the world. This extraordinary nautical development made the United States mistress of the seas for over a generation. But never has the whole story been told in a single volume until now. With over 100 drawings and plans by the author and George C. Wales and Henry Rusk. Original dust jacket over blue cloth covered end boards. Minor foxing under dust jacket to end boards. 400pp. 260 mm x 200 mm.
