This fabulous collection of truly magnificent ship paintings made in full color depicts a hundred of carefully selected amazing vessel images. It is a really perfect publication for all those people with the interest in naval history. It is quite likely that the early people initially ventured into the sea with the purpose of catching some fish and they would hardly have any objective for climbing onto the floating logs passing by, other than sport.

We can therefore say that the first use of those logs as the seaborne transport should be considered a sort of the starting point in the ship evolution process. As noted above, the present publication will provide readers with the nice pictures and, in addition to that, with the historical background for each of the vessels included.

The coverage is impressive – among the vessels selected for inclusion in this volume there are such famous ones as the Queen Hatshepsut, Greek bireme and trireme, the Mary Rose, Spanish Galleon and The Golden Hind, and so many others. We would even recommend to get yourself a printed copy of the publication as this shall be on the bookshelf of any person who likes sea, maritime history, and vessels of past times.
