Oars, Sails and Steam: A Picture Book of Ships
Edwin Tunis (au) (il)
A beautifully illustrated and skillfully written history of water transport from the dugout to the aircraft carrier. Presents the most important types of boats and ships in chronol. order, revealing each advance that made navigation easier, faster, and more efficient. The Egyptian sailboats that plied the waters of the Nile in 4700 B.C. give way to Phoenician warboats, Greek war galleys, and Roman triremes, which in turn are surpassed by Norse long ships, Medit. carracks, Eliz. galleons, and Brit. East Indiamen. The Steam Age includes Fitch’s 1787 steamboat; the 1807 “Clermont”; and the “Curacao”. Clipper ships, whaling barks, tramp steamers, steam liners, and warships, from destroyers to submarines, are also included. Reprint of 1952 ed.
