96 pp, large 8vo (9 5/8" H). Profusely illustrated with b&w drawings. "In this compendium, the development of the warship over nearly a century is highlighted in a fascinating series of informal line illustrations. From the end of the age of sail through to the present day, familiar and unfamiliar ships appear on these pages - dreadnoughts, monitors, submarines and carriers. Many curiosities are featured as subjects such as ships that might have been, deception at sea, merchantmen at arms, warships in 'retirement' and vessels that switched colors. For every historian and enthusiast, here is a delightful treasury of naval lore for reference and sheer enjoyment." Light cigarette odor, slight browning to free endpapers, light browning to top of text block, minor edge wear, light wrinkling at bottom of spine. Dust jacket has been price-clipped, has very light rubbing, light browning on inside, crease down front panel at flap-fold.
