LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:
Model and Allied Publications, Argus Books. London. 1979. Clippers are not a class of ship, or a rig, or a design but a loose term meaning a very fast sailing ship. A clipper was any vessel designed to sail as fast as possible and to carry cargo. Clippers could be of any size and of any rig. Clippers were at their peak in the years 1845 - 1875. Only a handful of clippers were ever built, compared with the mass of cargo carrying ships sailing the seas - this is their story. Well illustrated with plans, drawings and photographs of the clippers. Fine condition. Original dust jacket over blue cloth covered end boards. 154pp. 230 mm x 170 mm.
