Write The First Customer Review

Noted maritime artist Gordon Grant has created 80 magnificent line illustrations of some of history's most important sailing ships, beginning with a graceful Egyptian galley (c. 1600 B.C.) and ending with a splendid five-masted clipper ship of 1921. In between the reader will find a Roman trireme, a Viking longship, a 16th-century caravel, an East Indiaman of 1750, a New Bedford whaling bark, and dozens of lesser-known vessels.
