Atlantic Kingdom

Atlantic Kingdom

America's contest with Cunard in the age of sail and steam.
Atlantic Kingdom pays tribute to the Americans who challenged Cunard, the shipping company that held a monopoly on North Atlantic trade routes in the nineteenth century. These titans of the Atlantic left behind them a wreckage of human lives, lost ships, and squandered fortunes in their failed bids for supremacy of the seas.

The Earliest Ships (paperback)

The Earliest Ships (paperback)

Researching back into prehistory and into the earliest evidence provided by archaeology, this volume explores the varied lines of development from the most primitive watercraft to the first real seagoing ships, from Northern Europe, through the Mediterranean to the Near and Far Easts. It traces the most primitive forms of boats - rafts, skin boats and dugouts, for example - which developed ultimately into ships for trade, commerce and war. Apart from chapters on the craft themselves there are sections on related topics, including early pilotage and seamanship, and an evaluation of what modern reconstructions can tell us about the performance of ancient ship types. The Earliest Ships not only summarises existing information but has been produced by many of those whose pioneering work was responsible for the revolution in understanding in the first place.

The Restoration Warship: The Design, Construction and Career of a Third Rate of Charles II's Navy

The Restoration Warship: The Design, Construction and Career of a Third Rate of Charles II's Navy

Conway is proud to introduce a comprehensive and expertly illustrated history of HMS Lenox, a 70-gun third rate of Charles II's Navy. Laid down in 1677, Lenox represents the pinnacle of English shipbuilding practice and, in many ways, typifies all third-rate ships of the period, which were by far the most numerous class of warship in the seventeenth century, and formed the backbone of the English fleet. Lenox was ordered as the first of the King's 'Thirty Ships' building programme, a series of beautiful and powerful warships that were intended to reflect the glory and majesty of the monarch.Their graceful lines and ornate decoration made these ships ideal subjects for study - sketches were made, for example, by the famous artist Van de Velde, one of the fathers of the marine painting genre. Unsurprisingly, they remain a source of fascination for ship modellers today, and their construction in a time of huge international significance, during the Anglo-Dutch Wars of 1660-1685 and midway through Louis XIV's massive expansion programme for the French Navy, means there is great interest in this subject amongst historians. Employing extensive primary research, author Richard Endsor has produced one of the most detailed building and career histories of any vessel, in turn making a major contribution to modern understanding of English shipbuilding practice during the Restoration period.Every aspect of Lenox is covered in great detail, from initial design and construction to armament, fitting out and her later career. The book provides a broad picture of the day-to-day workings of Deptford dockyard, including the techniques, trade and tools of the shipwrights, sail-makers and rope-makers. It simultaneously demonstrates a very keen insight into the workings of naval administration. Construction of Lenox and her sisters was largely down to Samuel Pepys, the famous diarist and Secretary to the Admiralty, who considered the Thirty Ships programme to be 'the greatest achievement of my career'.Pepys figures as a key character in the context of Lenox's design, construction and build, and indeed such human interest is woven throughout. Employing original documents, individuals are shown to have influenced many aspects of the ship, which in turn, through this work, has now reserved its own place in maritime scholarship. "The Restoration Warship" will justifiably enter the canon of standard reference works on shipbuilding practice in the age of sail. It features a major contribution to modern understanding of shipbuilding techniques in the age of sail. It is comprehensively researched using primary sources and original documents. It is beautifully illustrated with the author's own plans, paintings and sketches. It presents one of the most detailed building & career histories of any sailing warship.

The Sea Painter's World: The New Marine Art of Geoff Hunt, 2003-2010

The Sea Painter's World: The New Marine Art of Geoff Hunt, 2003-2010

This timely follow-up to Conway's highly successful Marine Art of Geoff Hunt (2004) presents the considerable artistic output of Britain's leading marine painter since 2003. This new volume is heavily illustrated with images ranging from large paintings to sketchbook drawings with text written by the artist himself. The new book reflects the artist's developing career during a time in which Geoff served a five-year term as President of the Royal Society of Marine Artists, worked on large-scale paintings such as the definitive Mary Rose, and also completed numerous outdoor sketches and paintings. The book is divided into six sections: 1. The Sea Painter's World, an introduction to the artist's studio work at Merton Place, London and his plein air work on the River Thames; 2. Home Waters; 3. The Mediterranean; 4. In the Wake of Nelson; 5. North America and 6. The West Indies and Beyond. This concept sets Geoff's work in a broadly geographical context, showcasing the artist's freer plein air style alongside the exhaustively researched maritime history paintings to which he owes his standing as Britain's leading marine artist.
