   This title was released to address the important aspects of the Dutch shipbuilding in the XVII century, which is a really inaccessible area of research. The problem is that the earliest written sources of relevant information appear only in the late 1600s. The whole wealth of the information presented by Nicolaes Witsen in his first work was a bit hidden under the formulation and quite chaotic structure. It still remains the extremely valuable publication that needs and deserves careful attention of the readers, and this is what the author has tried to do within the present book. The main content of this volume has been arranged by the author in four big chapters; the first one is introductory, while the second chapter provides readers with the information on how the vessels are constructed in Holland of today, The third chapter of this work addresses the contracts used as the historical sources of information. The last chapter of this title is conclusive in nature and summarizes the previous chapters. The text of the book has been expanded with the informative tables of comparison between shipbuilding formulas, technical factors of the early ships, key to the ship parts, and several informative drawings for better understanding. The Glossary of the relevant terminology has also been provided.
