Overview

A new selection in the Anatomy of the Ship series, Tudor Warship Mary Rose is a unique insight into the architecture and construction of the iconic ship of the Tudor period. This comprehensive reference includes over 200 scale drawings detailing every part of the ship's interior and exterior from heel to masthead. As with other books in the series, Tudor Warship Mary Rose is a radical departure from the usual monograph approach, instead providing conventional ship plans as well as explanatory perspective views with fully descriptive keys.

In addition to describing the ship's structure and anatomy, McElvogue also utilizes archaeology to trace the development and career of Henry VIII's famous warship while placing it in the context of wider developments in shipbuilding. This book will surely appeal to model makers, historians, archaeologists, and enthusiasts alike.
