A guide to the ships of Admiral Horatio Nelson. This book includes fold-out plans showing hull framing, interior construction, complex rigging and deck layouts. It also features detailed specifications, measurements and other technical information.
The history of Admiral Horatio Nelson has been written from every possible angle, but this was not so with his ships. Not until this work was first published in 1961. Before then, such information as there was about the ships was buried in archives on Naval Architecture; only the top expert could have sifted it and present it in a usable form, Dr Longridge was that expert, and his work became a veritable treasure trove for every naval historian and ship modeller. His research is supported by 271 detailed line drawings, rare photographs and fold-out plans showing hull framing, interior construction, complexing and deck layouts
