The Anatomy of Nelson's Ships

Author(s): C. Nepean Longridge


The history of Admiral Horatio Nelson has been written from every possible angle, but this was not so with his ships. Not until this work was first published in 1955. Before then, such information as there was about the ships was buried in archives on Naval Architecture; only the top expert could have sifted it and present it in a usable form. Dr. Longridge was that expert, and his work became a veritable treasure trove for every naval historian and ship modeller. His research is supported by 271 detailed line drawings, rare photographs and fold-out plans showing hull framing, interior construction, complexing and deck layouts.

1994. Twelfth impression. A near fine copy only marked by light age tanning to the edges of the text block. The d/w is very good with light edge rubbing. Scans available if required.
