Courier Corporation, 2003 M07 1 - 89 páginas
Relying on his own experience in the U.S. Navy and consulting his contemporaries in the maritime profession, midshipman Murphy published this book to provide an accurate portrait of a ship's rigging and spars (masts or yardarms supporting or extending a ship's sail). An important book in maritime history, the study describes every improvement made in seafaring equipment up to 1849. Subjects cover everything from anchors, bobstays, booms, and cat-head stoppers, to a flying jib, halliards, nippers, and topsail buntlines.
