Synopsis:

We finally have the satisfaction of being able to offer you the second volume of "Historical Models". We have selected thirteen models from the museum's collections, presenting them in chronological order, among them a model of galley, the Navy of the Restoration period is illustrated by several models, including that of the famous Valmy.
We kept the presentation of the first volume, this was essential, the two books constituting a set.
The photographic examination of the models is carried out by general views, followed by numerous detailed views allowing a real approach "closer" to these models. Historical data concerning each model preceding the commented shots with the aim of explaining.
These two volumes must make better known the richness of the collections of our great Naval Museum as well as the French Naval Archeology Collection 1650-1850. We address to erudite amateurs practicing or not the art of the model making, appreciating the aesthetic and historical values of the models of our Museum.
Let us be aware of the importance of this very precious and fragile heritage, the only testimony of a disappeared navy.

Review:

although this book is only available in french language the comments I made for the first Volume (Review here:
HISTORIC SHIP MODELS - The Musée de la Marine Collection – (Volume 1))
can be completely repeated.
Especially if you want to build one of the ships, for which ancre is offering also a planset

These are:
LA RENOMMÉE - Frégate de 18 - 1806
https://ancre.fr/en/monograph/20-monographie-de-la-renommee-fregate-de-8-1744.html
and
LE CYGNE - Brick de 16 - 1806
https://ancre.fr/en/monograph/35-monographie-du-cygne-brick-1806.html
and
LA BELLE-POULE - Frégate de 60 bouches à feu - 1822 (37 photos)
https://ancre.fr/en/monograph/17-la-belle-poule-fregate-1765.html
