The Junks and Sampans of the Yangtze
“There is really nothing to compare it with, and it is unlikely that it will be superseded in the foreseeable future.” —The New York Times
In The Junks and Sampans of the Yangtze, G. R. G. Worcester has written and illustrated a definitive work that will excite the historian, traveler, collector, naval architect, sailor, and modelmaker alike. A definitive study of the Yangtze craft, complete with carefully detailed scale drawings, the result of the author's research and experience during his 30-year career as a river inspector in China. A lavishly produced volume.
