Whether Marine Historian, Model Shipbuilder, or just a History Buff
Offers Insights into History of Wooden Ships
Published in 1906, author George C.V.Holmes’s, Ancient and Modern Ships is a two volume set offering a dated, but useful reference on the history of various cultures’ maritime heritage. TheModelShipwright.com has republished Part I, which covers Wooden Sailing Ships.
This republished edition of the South Kensington Victoria and Albert Museum-supported textbook is reproduced in its original form, maintaining original pagination. Due to the deterioration of the original book that was scanned, there are some spots where reproduction is less than the clarity of a newly-published book. We at RedFlagPublishing.com feel this is an acceptable compromise to present the book to readers in the format in which it was published.
