The American-Built Clipper Ship, 1850-1856: Characteristics, Construction, and Details
The American-Built Clipper Ship 1850-1856 Characteristics Construction and Details Author:William L. Crothers Long of line, incredibly fleet, with tall, raking masts and clouds of sail, the great Yankee clipper ships stir dreams of romance and adventure. This book, the most important and detailed ever to appear on clipper ships, is the fruit of 35 years of research. Lavishly pictorial, it's a boon to maritime historians, model makers, and dreamers alike.
