Description :

Language: English . Brand New Book. Superbly researched and expertly illustrated, this study offers one of the most detailed building and career histories of a ship ever written, the third rate of Charles II s Restoration Navy. The author focuses on HMS Lenox, a 44-gun two-decker third rate built in 1677 during the Anglo-Dutch Wars and also in response to Louis XIV s massive naval expansion program. After twelve years of research and writing, Richard Endsor provides a comprehensive history of seventeenth-century ship design and construction techniques and the armament and fitting of the vessel. He offers a broad picture of the day-to-day workings of the Deptford dockyard where the Lenox was built and details of the techniques, trade, and tools of the shipwrights along with a keen insight into the workings of a naval administration under Samuel Pepys.

Synopsis : Conway is proud to introduce a comprehensive and expertly illustrated history of HMS Lenox, a 70-gun third rate of Charles II's Navy. Laid down in 1677, Lenox represents the pinnacle of English shipbuilding practice and, in many ways, typifies all third-rate ships of the period, which were by far the most numerous class of warship in the seventeenth century, and formed the backbone of the English fleet. Lenox was ordered as the first of the King's 'Thirty Ships' building programme, a series of beautiful and powerful warships that were intended to reflect the glory and majesty of the monarch.Their graceful lines and ornate decoration made these ships ideal subjects for study - sketches were made, for example, by the famous artist Van de Velde, one of the fathers of the marine painting genre. Unsurprisingly, they remain a source of fascination for ship modellers today, and their construction in a time of huge international significance, during the Anglo-Dutch Wars of 1660-1685 and midway through Louis XIV's massive expansion programme for the French Navy, means there is great interest in this subject amongst historians. Employing extensive primary research, author Richard Endsor has produced one of the most detailed building and career histories of any vessel, in turn making a major contribution to modern understanding of English shipbuilding practice during the Restoration period.Every aspect of Lenox is covered in great detail, from initial design and construction to armament, fitting out and her later career. The book provides a broad picture of the day-to-day workings of Deptford dockyard, including the techniques, trade and tools of the shipwrights, sail-makers and rope-makers. It simultaneously demonstrates a very keen insight into the workings of naval administration. Construction of Lenox and her sisters was largely down to Samuel Pepys, the famous diarist and Secretary to the Admiralty, who considered the Thirty Ships programme to be 'the greatest achievement of my career'.Pepys figures as a key character in the context of Lenox's design, construction and build, and indeed such human interest is woven throughout. Employing original documents, individuals are shown to have influenced many aspects of the ship, which in turn, through this work, has now reserved its own place in maritime scholarship. "The Restoration Warship" will justifiably enter the canon of standard reference works on shipbuilding practice in the age of sail. It features a major contribution to modern understanding of shipbuilding techniques in the age of sail. It is comprehensively researched using primary sources and original documents. It is beautifully illustrated with the author's own plans, paintings and sketches. It presents one of the most detailed building & career histories of any sailing warship.
