The Ships of Christopher Columbus
   It will rapidly become clear to the reader that this book does not fit easily into the pattern set by the other titles in the Anatomy series. Each previous volume was written by a specialist possessing full knowledge of the vessel under examination. The authors were able to base their descriptions on archival material like plans or on contemporary drawings or photographs. Even in the case of Susan Constant, by Brian Lavery - the subject nearest in time to Columbus's Santa Maria - the author was able to support his statements in part by reference to construction standards of the period. This is, unfortunately, far from being the case with the ships of Christopher Columbus. There is now no technical information available on how ships were built in Spain in the fifteenth century. The Itinerario de Navegacion by J Escalante de Mendoza (published in 1575 - 83 years after Columbus's voyage) contains only rules of a general character dealing with the materials used in shipbuilding, such as the timber most suitable for hull and masts or the appropriate vegetable fibres for manufacturing rigging and sails; the author gave no information at all on the dimensions of parts of the hull nor on the standing or running rigging.

The battleship Bismarck
   Today, we would like our readers to have a glance at the publication dedicated to the most famous warship in the naval history - the battleship Bismarck, which used to be the heaviest and biggest warship ever build in the whole European region. This nice and interesting semi-historical and semi-technical book by Jack Brower provides a pretty complete description of this vessel - the most of the publication consists of the detailed technical drawings and sketches depicting every part of the Bismarck. The pictures provided inside to supplement the text, are very clear and truly excellent, by the way, quite rare nowadays. The plans and drawings for sure will be of great use for the marine historians, illustrators and ship model makers as well as for every person interested in the battleships of the past. This book is a really must-have for every marine history enthusiast. The book really exposes the battleship Bismarck; we have to say that, in fact, most of the information collected by the author on Bismarck, would also apply to her sister-ship, Tirpitz. The materials provided on the 160 pages of this publication will definitely be highly welcome and appreciated by any naval historian and ship modeler.

  Another book by John McKay - this highly-rated book was written with the ultimate intention to tell you the truly captivating story of the famous HMS Victory, which is reputed as one of the greatest and important naval ships in the history, whose name will be always associated by people with the last battle of Admiral Nelson, the most successful and truly legendary naval commander in the history, who died on board HMS Victory, his flagship. The book provides description of the vessel, many pictures and about three hundred perfect and informative drawings addressing the hull construction, rigging, armament, fittings etc. You will know the remarkable story of this ship, starting straight from her construction and the years of brilliant service - did you know she was not decommissioned and, though not involved in any activities today, is still the longest serving war ship in the world! The publication is ideally suited to serve as the reference source for the naval history researchers, and as the guidance for ship modelers willing to try and build the model of arguably the most famous ship in the naval history. The excellence of the images included in the book is eclipsed by the extra-class standard of technical sketches and drawings.

anatomy of the ship - queen mary
   The "Queen Mary" project commenced in May 1967 when the Cunard Line shipping company announced that the subject vessel would be put up for sale. The city authorities had previously intended to found a maritime museum in the downtown, and the government officials came to the following wise and historical conclusion: what better place for a maritime museum that on board one of the most famous ships in the world! That made sense indeed and served as the basis for the establishment of the museum. It was also noted that, taking into account the size of the great liner, which was really huge, some areas of the vessel could easily accommodate such facilities as a hotel, some convention facilities, restaurants and shopping places, and there would still be more than enough room for the beautiful museum as it was originally envisaged... And, talking about this book, this one if the only Anatomy of the Ship book to cover a cruise liner. Traditionally for this series, the publication is full with technical descriptions, photos, drawings etc, and will be very useful and interesting to any marine enthusiast as well as naval historian or model builder, since the amount of useful information that this book provides them with, is really outstanding..

the destoyer escort england
   Designed with mass production in mind, the England was typical of the scores of long-hulled destroyer escorts built during the Second World War. Of all-welded construction, England's hull was a flush-deck design incorporating both longitudinal and transverse framing. Water-tight integrity was enhanced by 11 water-tight bulkheads, pierced by watertight hatches only on the first platform deck level. Below the first platform deck, access to all water-tight compartments was limited to water-tight scuttles fitted to the decks above. Further protection was ensured by longitudinal bulkheads aft and forward of the engineering spaces - those spaces were extending from keel to main deck between frames 59 and 113. The engineering spaces were staggered to enhance powerplant survivability and were arranged: fire room (boiler room), engine room, fire room, engine room. The forward pair normally serviced the starboard shaft; the after pair the port shaft. The engineering spaces could only be reached vertically from the main deck. Fuel oil was stored in compartments forward and aft of the engineering spaces below the 2nd platform deck and reserve feed water tanks were fitted outboard in both fire rooms...

anatomy of the ship - hms beagle


   Here is a story of the ten-gun brig and famous survey vessel. We all know what exactly she became famous for - the voyages under Fitzroy's command and with the great scientist Charles Darwin on board. Substantial literature has been produced around Charles Darwin's journey in the Beagle, but her first and third voyages were never emphasized in modern writings; it is only lately when the interesting story of her work in Australia between 1837 and 1843 has been told. There are dozens of the photos in the book - note, however, that they are all black and white. Most of the images are standard 3 in to 5 in size, but some of them are slightly larger. There are not too many drawings in comparison with the other publications of the same series, the main accent is made by the author on the stories and descriptions. The author paid attention to the running and standing rigging of the vessel and fittings of the rigging points, the boats, overall layout of the machinery, equipment and armament, and the amount of the info collected by him made this book a very valuable reference - one can easily build an excellent replica of this remarkable vessel using the data, drawings and images provided in this publication.

the bomb vessel granado
 

   Another book by Peter Goodwin, one of the world respected and recognized experts and writers on the sailing warships of the past. The publication keeps the brilliant tradition of the series. The research performed by the author is perfect and thorough, covering all stages of the development as well as remarkable service life of the vessel. The ship modelers will definitely appreciate the efforts made by the author as they are getting the invaluable source of detailed technical info and images aimed to make the process of building the model of Granado much easier and smooth. Apart from the model makers, the publication will be very good for anyone willing to learn something new on this warships and on the general construction of the old-time warships. The book features many first-class photographs taken a model exposed in the National Maritime Museum. The line drawing details are very informative and comprehensive. We were really impressed with the attention paid by the author to the details, such as masts, various rigging, sails, planking etc. This book is a genuine dream for the ship model maker - moreover, historians will also find it nice due to the historical background and measurements provided for this old and classic ship.

anatomy of the ship - hms bounty
 
   The Anatomy of the Ship book dedicated to the eternally famous armed transport Bounty. Centuries ago, in the year 1775, The Standing Committee of West India Planters & Merchants decided to introduce bread-fruit trees and mangosteen into the West India colonies as an inexpensive source of food for their plantation slaves. An excellent prize was offered to anyone who successfully transported bread-fruits from the East to the West Indies, and, in 1777, a fund was set up to encourage people's interest in the subject adventurous and so interesting project. The book starts with the introductory chapter providing some historical background. Then, there is info on the hull construction, refit and decoration, steering gear and ground tackle, pumps, boats, crew and accommodation, masts and yards (with dimensions specified), sails, rigging, ordnance. This chapter is followed by a number of nice close-up photos of the full size replicas of the HMS Bounty, and the next and last section of the publication contains and a truly huge collection of detailed technical drawings, including three-view drawings, and good construction plans. we do believe it is needless to say that the full and thorough description of the vessel is also provided to the reader.
