Abstract:

"Ships of Discovery and Exploration tells the stories of 125 vessels that have played important roles in voyages of geographical exploration and scientific discovery. From Polynesian double canoes to the most technically sophisticated submersibles used to investigate the ocean depths, each ship is described in a vivid short essay that captures its history and personality. A narrative introduction, chronology, and maps help the reader follow the course of the great seafarers through time and space, while drawings, paintings, and photographs show the grandeur and grace of these seafaring vessels."--Jacket.
