Spars and Rigging: From Nautical Routine, 1849
An accurate portrait of a ship's rigging and masts (or yardarms), this important study by a U.S. Navy midshipman describes every improvement made in seafaring equipment up to the mid-nineteenth century. Subjects cover everything from anchors, bobstays, booms, and cat-head stoppers, to flying jibs, halliards, nippers, and topsail buntlines. An ideal reference for ship model builders, this authentic guide will also appeal to naval historians and armchair sailors. 29 line drawings; 189 figures.
