Here is a quite rare and classic book on ancient and modern vessels. The main content of the book is made of five major chapters; while the opening chapter is purely introductory, the next chapters provide the interested readers with the useful information about the ancient ships that used to sail in the Red and Mediterranean as well as in the Seas of Northern Europe, Medieval ships, Modern wooden sailing ships.

The appendix contains description of an archaic greek bireme. Just imagine, the publication was originally printed in London more than hundred years ago, by Wyman and Sons, for His Majesty's Stationery Office; the body of the volume contains more than seventy interesting illustrations. Believe it is absolutely needless to underline that the present publication will be a great one for the collection of any sea lover, shipbuilder and naval historian.
