Karl Heinz Marquardt

Available from these sellers.

Book Description

6 May 2014 Anatomy of the Ship
The Endeavour, made eternally famous by Captain Cook's first voyage of exploration in 1768-1771, was originally the collier Earl of Pembroke and was chosen by the Admiralty for the voyage because of her strong construction. She was purchased by the Royal Navy at Whitby and then converted to an exploration ship at Deptford. After her voyage she was sold out of service in 1775, and finally condemned in 1790. This volume features An introductory text describing the ship, her build and rig, based on the author's fresh research, and an outline of her career. Photographic section depicting various models as well as the recent Australian replica. A guide to the vessel's colour scheme and decoration on the jacket. More than 300 perspective and 3-view drawings, with in-depth descriptive keys, of every detail of the ship hitherto misunderstood. One large-scale plan on the the extended cover flaps. This highly-acclaimed series aims to provide the finest documentation of individual ships and ship types ever published. It is a radical departure from the usual monograph approach, which concentrates on either the ship s service history, its technical details or external appearance. All of these aspects are included in the Anatomy of the Ship , but what makes the series unique is a complete set of superbly executed line drawings, the conventional 3-view type of plan as well as explanatory perspective views with fully descriptive keys. These drawings are accurate, visually exciting and totally comprehensive, offering ship enthusiasts, historians and modelmakers a novel insight into the technicalities of each ship type covered. Following a full introduction on the service and design history, each title also includes a photographic section which illustrates the vessel, and subsequent models, in close detail.
