This story of sailing ships has been written primarily for the general reader, in the hope that the sons and daughters of a naval nation, and of an Empire that stretches beyond the seas, may find therein a record of some interest and assistance in enlarging and systematising their ideas on the subject, especially as regards the ships of earlier centuries. I trust that both the yachtsman and sailorman will find in these pages something of the same exiting pleasure which has been mine in tracing the course of the evolutions through which their ships have passed. A well written and beautifully illustrated historical account that starts with the early Egyptian ships from 6000 BC and covers the development of sailing ships until the beginning of the 20th century.
