The National Maritime Museum in Greenwich houses the largest collection of scale ship models in the world. This book is the first in a series which will use selections of the best models to tell the story of specific ship types. Each volume reproduces a large number of model photos, all in full color, including many close-up and detail views. Although pictorial in emphasis, the book weaves the pictures into an authoritative text, producing an unusual and attractive form of technical history of the sailing frigate.
Robert Gardiner is the author of three books on sailing cruisers, including Frigates of the Napoleonic Wars, published in 2000 and re-released in paperback in 2006. His last book was a new and enlarged edition of Warships of the Napoleonic Era.Review :
An extensively researched book full of insight and a wealth of detail. It will appeal to anyone with an interest in the era of sail. The Naval Review
