    Archaeology of the Boat: A New Introductory Study by Basil Greenhill

    A & C Black, London, 1976. First Edition. Hardcover (Original Cloth). Very Good Condition/Very Good. front cover illust. shows the Seal of Paris & the back cover an Italian engraving of a three­masted ship c. 1470-1480. This book brings together existing knowledge on the development of the world's boats, for both the practical archaeologist and the general reader, in a way not done since James Hornell's classic "Water Transport" published 1946. Basil Greenhill, Director of the National Maritime Museum, collates the available evidence on the evolution of boat and shipbuilding through the ages and examines it as a part of the development of changing civilizations, and not just as a catalogue of the world's major boat finds. The book covers the four main roots of boatbuilding - the raft, the skin boat, the bark boat and the dugout - and traces the evolution of each type with particular reference to Europe and North America. Basil Greenhill's study includes the technological revolutions which took place in the 15th century. Two of the chapters have been written by distinguished specialists - John Morrison (President of Wolfson College, Cambridge) contributes a discussion on the development of boats and ships in the classical Mediterranean and Sean McGrail (Chief Archaeologist at the National Maritime Museum) writes on the building of Viking ships. Boat archaeology is a new, but rapidly expanding, discipline, and as further discoveries are made this book will help to set them in the context of centuries of boatbuilding and boat development. The book contains over 200 photographs and line drawings, as well as chapter by chapter bibliographies, glossary and index. Size: 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. 320 pages. Dust Jacket is in very good condition, without tears or chips or other damage, other than spine which is faded by sun exposure. Dust Jacket price-clipped. Small number written in ink bottom corner of f.e.p.. Gilt titles spine. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos. Category: Archaeology; Nautical; Maritime; boatbuilding; Ships & the Sea.
