Full Description:

Cutty Sark was the greatest of the tea clippers and an iconic British institution. This new work describes the eventful history of this celebrated ship from her 1869 construction, her famous voyages, dramatic fire, painstaking restoration, and glorious reopening in April 2012. Developed with the Cutty Sark Trust, the book provides a chronological narrative along with detailed features on crew accounts, log entries, pieces on seamanship, ports and cargoes and broader tall ship culture, as well as an opportunity to focus on artifacts and the fittings of the clipper ship. It includes rare and previously unpublished historical images from the ship’s collections and those of the National Maritime Museum.

Eric Kentley is a former curator at the National Maritime Museum, and assistant director of London’s Design Museum. Now a freelancer, he assisted with the plans for the conservation of the Cutty Sark and authored the exhibition content. His books include Eyewitness Boat, Cornwall’s Bridge and Viaduct Heritage and Discover the Titanic. He lives in south London.
