a handbook for the building of historical ship-models

by E.W. Petrejus

N.V. Uitgeversmaatschaapij "De Esch", 1970.

large format hardback [29x21cm]. 287 pages.

very good condition in a rather creased dust-jacket. neat gift inscription to front free end-paper.

with a glowing appreciation by Howard Chapelle, this is a fine ship modelling text. concentrating on the early 19-century 18-gun 'Irene' of the Dutch navy [originally built as the 'Grasshopper' in 1806 for the British navy], but also including much information relevant to modelling other ships from the period.

containing 573 clear line drawings in the text.
