Description
From the long-lived Cunard liner Aquitania (the biggest ship in Britain in 1913 and the only major liner to survive military service in both world wars) to the Hamburg-built Cap Trafalgar (which made only three voyages before being converted to a German armed merchant cruiser in World War I, and sunk by another former liner, Carmania), this volume examines seven ships in detail, with foldout plans and construction photos. The book documents 53 vessels in total, illustrated with 313 photos, 64 text plans, 70 additional figures, 20 fold-outs, 29 diagrams, 11 transverse cutaways, and five pages of color plates. First appearing in 1906, The Shipbuilder quarterly was advertised as "the only periodical published in Great Britain which is exclusively devoted to Shipbuilding, Ship-repairing, and Marine Engineering." It set new standards with the quality and accuracy of its fold-out plans, drawings, photographs, color reproductions, and even the clay-coated paper it was printed on, and its reports on the building and launching of particular vessels remain, in many cases, the best if not the only record of these ships. The articles are presented here in context with original illustrated advertisements for everything from Siemens telegraph equipment to the Vi-Spring mattresses selected for Olympic and Titanic.
