The 19th century was the age of shipbuilding in the Maritime Provinces: all along the coast men were turning trees into ships that would sail on the world's oceans. In this beautifully illustrated volume, marine historian Stanley Spicer recaptures the age of sail and its many colourful characters.
The Age of Sail draws on a range of rich visual resources including ship portraits, archival photographs, engravings, and artifacts displayed in the collections of leading Maritime museums, adding depth to a gripping historical account.Author: Stanley T. Spicer
