Sailing Ships: The Story of their Development from the Earliest Times to the Present Day

'Sailing Ships: The Story of their Development from the Earliest Times to the Present Day' was first published in 1909 but it remains one of the most comprehensive and well-researched books on the subject. British maritime writer Edward Keble Chatterton (1878 – 1944) provides a huge trove of information plus 130 illustrations. He concludes the book with a beautiful tribute to the sailing ship: "Now that we have shown...her noble and illustrious pedigree, her ancestry reaching back through the centuries into the first blush of the dawn of the world's creation, perhaps we shall regard her with an interest, a respect and affection at once greater and deeper because we have become better acquainted with the reasons that have caused each of these developments." (13.6 MiB, PDF, 438 pages)
