Building the Wooden Fighting Ship

£19.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Published in 1984 this book is in very good condition throughout. The pages are clean and intact. The jacket is in good condition too.

James Moore and James Dodds describe in detail the building of HMS Thunderer, a two-decked, 74-gun ship-of-the-line, representing one of the most successful types of warship of the late eighteenth century, when British shipbuilders were recognized as the best in the world. In words and drawings they illustrate every stage of building, from the purchase and cutting of the timber to her launch in 1760, as well as describing the dockyard in which she was built and the variety of trades and skills that went into her construction and armament.

Building the Wooden Fighting Ship is not only a fascinating account of the construction of a noble and historic ship but also a vivid and often surprising picture of life and labour in the eighteenth century.
