Spars and Rigging from Nautical Routine, 1849
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.
