SAILING WARSHIPS OF THE US NAVY

Canney, Donald L.

London: Chatham Publishing, 2001. 224pp., b/white art and photographic illustrations, and ship's plans. Book clean, square. Spine firm, gilt title there-on. Plain blue boards lightly bumped on foredges, else undamaged. Leaves clean and unmarked. Art-illustrated ('USS North Carolina', oil painting by Cammillieri), loose-plastic protected dustjacket sunned on spine (title clearly legible) and narrow adjacent strip of front panel, negligible edge creasing, tiny nip to lower foredge fold. From the rear panel: "Although a relatively small force during the age of sail, the US Navy was nevertheless closely watched by larger maritime powers impressed by the radical thinking and innovative design manifest in so many of its warships . . . For over fifty years knowledge of these ships has relied heavily on the works of Howard Chapelle, a practical naval architect with a fine understanding of design, but an amateur historian who was less than professional in his recording of sources. This book is the first broad survey to look again at Chapelle's findings, to unearth new material, and in many cases to draw different conclusions . . . Much emphasis is placed on reproducing the original draughts, supported by contemporary paintings, prints and other visual evidence, for which the large format is ideal. The main chapters are devoted to the major warship types, from ships on the line down to brigs and schooners, as well as vessels on the Great Lakes, looking at design, performance and career details. The narrative is backed by appendices dealing with gunboats, galleys and revenue cutters, an extensive table of ship data, and completed by the full reproduction of the highly significant building specification for 'Constitution' and her sisters." Includes Preface, Introduction, Notes, Bibliography and Index. Book weight approx. 1.3 KG. *Customers outside Australia - This item will incur extra postage charges as it weighs over 1KG.

Annapolis: Naval Institute Press [1-55750-990-5] 2001. (4to) 224pp. Near fine in very good plus dust jacket. Illustrated title page, photographs, illustrations, diagrams, appendices, bibliography, index. The spine is gently worn and the dust jacket is lightly edgeworn. "Although a relatively small force during the age of sail, the US Navy was nevertheless closely watched by larger maritime powers impressed by the radical thinking and innovative design manifest in so many of its warships. This gives the subject an interest that stretches far beyond the shores of America itself. For over fifty years knowledge of these ships has relied heavily on the works of Howard Chapelle, a practical naval architect with a fine understanding of design, but an amateur historian who was less than professional in his recording of sources. This book is the first broad survey to look again at Chapelle's findings, to unearth new material, and in many cases to draw different conclusions". Time Period 18th Century & 19th Century. Locale: United States. (Military, American Revolution, Frigates, Gunboats, Naval History, Sailing, Schooners, Warships).
