In 1681 publiceerde Wigardus van (of à) Winschooten een bijzonder origineel werk, waarin hij maritieme woorden, uitdrukkingen en spreekwoorden bijeenbracht. "De Seeman", dat 368 pagina's en een kleine 1700 trefwoorden telt, verscheen op het moment dat de scheepsbouw in Nederland zijn hoogtepunt bereikte en Nederlandse schepen alle wateren ter wereld bevoeren. Scheepvaarttermen drongen door tot de gewone taal, waarin ze tot op heden nog dagelijks worden gebruikt, zij het vaak onbewust. In deze deskundig hertaalde editie van de Seeman vindt u behalve diverse trefwoordenregisters ook een biografie over Van Winschooten en talloze prachtige, verhelderende illustraties. De Seeman bevat niet alleen een schat aan informatie over de Nederlandse taal, maar ook over scheepsbouw en scheepvaart in de Renaissance, op zeer smakelijke wijze verwoord door Wigardus van Winschooten

Nicolaes Witsen and shipbuilding in the Dutch Golden Age by A. J Hoving ( Book )
2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In 1671, Dutch diplomat and scientist Nicolaes Witsen published a book that served, among other things, as an encyclopedia for the "shell-first" method of ship construction. In the centuries since, Witsen's rather convoluted text has also become a valuable source for insights into historical shipbuilding methods and philosophies during the "Golden Age" of Dutch maritime trade. However, as André Wegener Sleeswyk's foreword notes, Witsen's work is difficult to access not only for its seventeenth-century Dutch language but also for the vagaries of its author's presentation. Fortunately for scholars and students of nautical archaeology and shipbuilding, this important but chaotic work has now been reorganized and elucidated by A. J. Hoving and translated into English by Alan Lemmers. In Nicolaes Witsen and Shipbuilding in the Dutch Golden Age, Hoving, master model builder for the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, sorts out the steps in Witsen's method for building a seventeenth-century pinas by following them and building a model of the vessel. Experimenting with techniques and materials, conducting research in other publications of the time, and rewriting as needed to clarify and correct some vital omissions in the sequence, Hoving makes Witsen's work easier to use and understand. Nicolaes Witsen and Shipbuilding in the Dutch Golden Age is an indispensable guide to Witsen's work and the world of his topic: the almost forgotten basics of a craftsmanship that has been credited with the flourishing of the Dutch Republic in the seventeenth century."--Project Muse
