This is an enlarged edition of a work that has been accepted as the most complete exposition of model shipbuilding. The book is unusual in its attention to minute and authentic detail, supplying more than a thousand diagrams. Included are details and features of a typical whaling vessel of the Moby Dick era, river and harbor ferryboats of the double-ender type and, in removable inserts, complete working plans for a clipper ship, a Gloucester fisherman, a harbor tugboat, a dragger, and the ironclads Monitor and Merrimac.
