David Steel, the author of this perfect, very useful and informative two-volume set, was deservedly considered to be among the world recognized and respected naval publishers who worked in the past, namely in the late XVIII/early XIX centuries. His interesting and well-though publications were focusing on the naval strategy and established ship construction techniques.
The present work by Steel was originally released nearly forty years ago and was treated as the very first English manual providing all interested readers including students and specialists, with the best naval practice. The content of this set was specifically designed and worked out to aspire the young officers. The success of these books resulted in establishing the brilliant reputation of David Steel as a publisher. These publications provide all readers with the good descriptions of both practical and theoretical aspects of the masts/rigging, sails and the whole science of sailing.
The author perfectly combined the practical advice which is supported by both scientific and math explanations with the numerous helpful illustrations providing valuable insight into the British seamanship of the times of the Napoleonic wars. We would recommend these volumes to all persons with the deep interest in naval sciences.
