Historic Ship Models

£8.99

Product description

More than 2,500 photographs, detailed diagrams, intricate drawings, and easy-to-follow plans fill every page of this invaluable book for making model ships. It's simply breathtaking, rich in historical facts about real ships that sailed the seas from 3000 B.C. to the 19th century, and generously informative. Charts and checklists abound, and the essential advice covers every conceivable point, from deciding on a project to choosing the best plans, from making the most of a limited budget to selecting the handiest materials. Every model maker will find eye-opening ideas.

Hardback originally published in Germany in 1977, this version was published in England in 1987. In good condition, binding sound and internal pages clean and unmarked. Red boards with title in gilt on spine. There is some very slight creasing on spine and some very minor dents inn the edges of the boards but really the book appears unopened and unused. However there is some staining on the first and final free end pages, this appears to be where the dustjacket has been pressed against the end pages. There is also a small mark on the first free end page and a small brown stain on the edge of the pages, this does not affect the print. There are three or four tiny specks on the top edge of the book which may be the beginning of foxing. Considering publication date the book is in very good condition, the dustjacket has some slight creasing at the top but otherwise appears almost as new.
