Description The 100-Gun Ship Victory de John McKay:

Forever associated with Nelson's last battle, HMS Victory is one of the most famous ships of all time, and is now preserved as a major part of the Royal Naval Museum, Portsmouth. The ship's survival is particularly appropriate since Victory is not only an example of the ultimate sailing warship - the three-decker First Rate - but was also the most popular and successful 100-gun ship of the period. Forty years old even by the time of the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805, she had been the flagship of half a dozen famous admirals, and was to continue in active service until 1812. This superb book includes a full description of the ship and her influence in the development of the First Rate ship of the line, a photographic pictorial reference section, and more than 300 perspective and three-view drawings with in-depth descriptive keys. General arrangements, hull construction, fittings, decoration, masts and yards, rigging and armament as presently restored are all covered in considerable detail. John McKay is an architectural draughtsman by profession, and this training undoubtedly helped with the production of a series of techical drawings for three volumes in Conway's Anatomy of the Ship series- on the Victory, the frigate Pandora and the armed transport Bounty. John lives near Vancouver, Canada.
