The book was written by R. C. Andersen for the ship model builders. There are not too many books today that would provide so much useful information to the ship modeling enthusiasts. The material presented in the book is supplemented with the clear diagrams for better understanding. This book is intended to describe and depict in details how exactly the XVII century English, Dutch, French and other European trading vessels and warships were rigged, from the running rigging of the topsails and topgallants to the bowsprit and lower masts. It contains for than three hundred and fifty line drawings illustrating the rigging of all presented ships in detail. The book will definitely be of great use for people who like ships and modeling, and who are interested in naval history and warships of the past.
