18th Century Shipbuilding - Remarks on the Navies of the English & the Dutch

£60.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

JEAN BOUDRIOT, 1992. This hardcover book is in very good condition overall. The cover of the book is clean and without issue, as are the pages of the book. The jacket has some minor wear along the edges, as well as a few small markings.

'This book contains the full text of the Remarks in both the original French and in translation, fully annotated and with a length explanatory introduction. It is lavishly illustrated with nearly 100 contemporary engravings, plans, ships' draughts and other iconographic material. Also included is a 20 page translation of part of Ollivier's remarkable manuscript Dictionary of Shipbuilding Terms. In many ways the counterpart of the Remarks for contemporary practice in the French Navy. These two manuscripts constitute a unique eyewitness account which is essential reading for anyone with an interest in how ships were built by three of Europe's most powerful Navies on the eve of the Seven Years' War.'
