   This book by Giorgio Osculati and Sergio Bellabarba was released to serve as a reference book for ship modelers. As it is already the established tradition for all of the Anatomy of the Ship series publications, it contains so much valuable technical and historical information about the Royal Yacht Caroline - it all makes the book extremely useful for that such enthusiasts.

   The first, introductory part of this publication, provides us with some historical background and sheds some light on the development of the "career" of this remarkable vessel, her reconstruction, hull structure and fittings, decorative work, armament, spars and masts; particular attention has been paid by the author to sails arrangement, trestletrees, tops and caps, standing rigging, belaying, rigging dimensions, colour scheme, running rigging. There are many photographs in the book included to illustrate the text.

   In addition to the images mentioned above, a number of detailed regular and three-view drawings addressing ship construction, lines, general arrangement, decoration and fittings, armament and boats, yards and masts, sails and rigging have been provided by the duet of authors in order to make the book even more useful and practical for model makers.
