Heart of Oak: A Sailor's Life in Nelson's Navy
Inspired by reading Patrick O'Brian's Aubrey/Maturin novels, McGuane photographed artifacts recovered from shipwrecks and found in small museums along the English coast. Taken together, these unique treasures provide a window into the everyday life of the officers and sailors in the Royal Navy of the Napoleonic era. Includes lovely photographs of Nelsonís flag ship, HMS "Victory", preserved at Portsmouth, England. From tar-ladles and snuff-boxes to sailmaker's fids and carronades, this is a gorgeous photographic essay that reveals Jack Aubrey's world.
