This is one of the oldest publication on naval architecture. Published a century ago, it was originally intended for use by the beginners. The chapters of the volume are covering all important aspects of naval architecture. Though released so many years ago, the book is still very useful and practical for the students since the theoretical information contained in its pages retained its topicality.

In the opening chapter of the book the author introduces readers to the main definitions used in the naval architecture, such as the floating body and displacement, as well as the basic calculations. The second chapter is devoted to the Sterling's Rules, while the third one deals with the method of applying these Rules... The list of chapter titles and topics covered therein is quite long, but in short we may say that the author managed to embrace absolutely all areas of naval architecture science that shall the future naval architects shall be aware of as necessary.

That is why and based on the numerous positive feedbacks received from all parts of the world, we would definitely find it reasonable to recommend this classic publication to every single student of marine related disciplines willing to get a good understanding of the fundamental principles of naval architecture, ship design and construction.
