Abstract:

" ... The Royal Navy... comprehensive listing of its ships and their essential characteristics ... it not only includes basic specifications, building data and fates, but organises the material into types and classes with notes on design and designer. Typical entries include dimensions, tonnage, armament, builder, construction dates and detailed notes on the fates of individual vessels, with short narrative introductions outlining the principal influences on development. The book is broken down into distinct periods, further subdivided into the major ship types,w hich together amount to a skeletal history of Royal Navy warship developments. The coverage is remarkably complete, taking in not only purpose build warships, but also auxiliaries, purchased ships and prizes. It begins in 1688, partly reflecting the beginning of systematic records, and carries the story down to the end of the age of sail ..." -- Back cover.
