The Model ship Her Role in History by Norman Napier Boyd

Unavailable
The theme of the book is the practical part played by the model in maritime development, arranged in roughly chronological order - from Ancient Egypts; funerary model role, to the seventeenth century's use of the model in illustrating naval design developments to such modern naval architecture aspects as tank testing, stability simulation, war-damage control and even to its use in filming naval battles (such as the television series Hornblower).
A major aim is to help the reader acquire a critical eye for classifyingmodel types and list many of the major model collections. It is not,however, a how-to-do-it model guide. While the book will explain and illustrate the undoubted aesthetic qualities of models for those interested in maritime history, it will be a particularly useful reference work for collectors, dealers and museum staff with a commercial interest in ship models.
