Full Description:

The National Maritime Museum in Greenwich houses the largest collection of scale ship models in the world. This book is the first in a series which will use selections of the best models to tell the story of specific ship types. Each volume reproduces a large number of model photos, all in full color, including many close-up and detail views. Although pictorial in emphasis, the book weaves the pictures into an authoritative text, producing an unusual and attractive form of technical history of the sailing frigate.

Robert Gardiner is the author of three books on sailing cruisers, including Frigates of the Napoleonic Wars, and Warships of the Napoleonic Era.

~ Praise for The Sailing Frigate ~

"An important contribution that will be valuable both to specialists and general readers alike."

Nautical Research Journal

“Robert Gardiner’s latest book, The Sailing Frigate: A History in Ship Models, illustrates why he is so highly-regarded….For those interested in warships of the sailing era, The Sailing Frigate: A History in Ship Models is a book worth acquiring. It offers an outstanding introduction to the history of that era’s most storied sailing warship.”
