“Ships of discovery and exploration” tells the stories of 125 vessels that have played important roles in voyages of geographical exploration and scientific discovery, from early Polynesian double canoes to the most technically sophisticated submersibles. Each ship is described in a vivid short essay that captures its personality as well as its physical characteristics, construction and history. Drawings, paintings and photographs show the grandeur and grace of these oceangoing vessels, maps help the reader follow the routes of great seafarers and naval campaigns and chronologies offer a perspective on underwater archaeology sites, maritime technology, exploration and disasters at sea.
