First Rate: The Greatest Warships in the Age of Sail

by Winfield, Rif

CAD $101.95

The “First Rate” sailing warships were the largest, most powerful, and most costly naval vessels to construct, maintain, and operate. They were built to the highest standards, lavishly decorated, and carefully named to reflect national pride and prestige. The embodiment of national power, they were captured by artists, engravers, and printmakers. Winfield presents-in paintings, drawings, models, or plans-every British First Rate from the Prince Royal of 1610 to the end of the Age of Sail.
