Fine in Fine jacket. 8vo-over 7¾"-9¾" tall. 132 pages, illustrated. "The SS. Great Britain, launched in 1844, is a unique ship, since she not only played a major part in the transition from sail to steam, but also the stage for a century of ship development. She was the first iron ship, the largest yet built, and the first to be driven by screw propulsion. But apart from her significance in the evolution of naval architecture, her story provides a fascinating insight to many aspects of mid-Victorian England." FINE HARDCOVER, FINE DUST JACKET.
