Old Ship Figure-Heads and Sterns
A well-illustrated look at shipboard ornamentation through the ages--from charging ram heads on ancient Greek and Roman war-galleys, saints on horseback, and allegorical portrayals of royalty to vintage Elizabethan galleons and Lord Nelson's Victory, built in 1765. Over 420 copyright-free illustrations also depict escutcheons, lanterns, rails, gun ports, belfries, timberheads, and other decorative elements. A carefully researched, eminently readable text for naval historians, model builders and anyone interested in the great ocean-going vessels of the past.
