Uwek, I'm fortunate to have ALL these books! Xcept the 'Ships of Columbus'. No doubt that will come along eventually. What a fine library to have. Some titles have issues with detail or historical accuracy, but I feel you have to be a pedant to throw criticism at them. Well worth having on the shelf.
I'm surprised Cutty Sark wasn't included in the series. A bit of a shame there. A French 74 would be nice too.

I have also only two missing - the Columbus ships and the Mary Rose, but I do not miss them, due to the fact I am not sooooo interested in this period.
It is not surprising, that no french ship was included at this time, due to the fact, that all of the authors are all connected more to british and american vessels.
It was the who is who of researchers of this time....

Yes, I feel the same about the two titles you mention, though I do have the Mary Rose. Mine is softcover; I don't think they issued a hardback (never found one).
I have all but 3 or 4 of the other ship titles in the series; the ones I don't have go for silly money.
