The Warship Anne: An illustrated history
by Richard Endsor (Author)

Synopsis:
If you go down to the shore at Hastings on the UK's south coast at low tide you will come upon an amazing sight. There, revealed by the receding waves are the remarkably complete mortal remains of a seventeenth century warship. The Anne was launched in 1678 and was lost in 1690 at the battle of Beachy Head. As she lay beached, she was torched to prevent her from falling into enemy hands. Today the wreck is owned by the Shipwreck Museum at Hastings and in the past few years there have been some intriguing attempts to bring the ship back to life using advanced simulation and modeling techniques. Ship's historian and draughtsman Richard Endsor has written a history of this wonderful and accessible ship, bringing the ship fully back to life using his beautiful and accurate drawings and paintings.

Richard Endsor's previous book, The Restoration Warship inspired the locals at Deptford to plan a full size replica of Lenox, the warship covered in that book.

You mean this one, or?

Unfortunately it is too early already to compare the two books. I was ordering the new one based on the interesting synopsis - and to be honest, I have also to take a second look at the Restoration Warship -> too much books in the library :oops:

About the Lennox project there is this web-page, telling, that they planned to have the business plan finished in 2018 -> but this is already 2 years ago (in the meantime) - so it seems to be problematic

A great finding - Such things should be framed and hanging in your workshop Thumbs-Up
BTW: very good work-preparation you did already in this young age -> I see no problems with your actual scratch built

Sovereign of the Seas 1637: A Reconstruction of the Most Powerful Warship of Its Day
by John Mckay (Author) - planned release at 28th February 2020

91igcVbAXcL.jpg

Synopsis:
Sovereign of the Seas was the most spectacular, extravagant and controversial warship of the early seventeenth century. The ultimate royal prestige project, whose armament was increased by the King's decree to the unheard-of figure of one hundred guns, the ship finally cost the equivalent of ten more conventional warships. In this book, John McKay sets out to analyze the data and reconstruct the design and appearance of the ship in a degree of detail never previously attempted. The results are presented as a folio of superbly drafted plans, isometric drawings and colored renderings, covering every aspect of the design from the hull form to the minutiae of sails and rigging.

The Master Shipwright's Secrets: How Charles II built the Restoration Navy
by Richard Endsor (Author) planned release at 5th March 2020

the_master_shipwright_s_secrets_1.jpg

Synopsis:
Inspired by the recent discovery of mathematically calculated digital plans for a fourth-rate ship by the Deptford master shipwright, John Shish, The Master Shipwright's Secrets is an illustrated history of Restoration shipbuilding focused on the Tyger, one of the smaller but powerful two-deck warships of the period. It examines the proceedings of King Charles II in deciding the types of ship he wanted and his relationship with his master shipwrights.

This fascinating book reveals the many secrets of Charles II's shipwrights through an analysis of John Shish's plans for the Tyger, revealing innovative practical calculations which differ significantly from the few contemporary treatises on the subject and the complicated process of constructing the moulds necessary to make the ship's frame. All the other duties performed by the master shipwrights, such as repairing ships, controlling their men and keeping up with the latest inventions are also discussed in detail.

The Master Shipwright's Secrets is replete with beautiful and detailed illustrations of the construction of the Tyger and explores both its complicated history and its complex rebuilding, complete with deck plans, internal sections, and large-scale external shaded drawings. The title also explores associated ships, including another fourth-rate ship, the Mordaunt, which was purchased into the Navy at the time and underwent a dimensional survey by John Shish. A rare contemporary section drawing of another fourth-rate English ship and constructional drawings of Shish's later fourth-rate ship, St Albans, are also included.
  • Gebundene Ausgabe: 304 Seiten
  • Verlag: Osprey Publishing (5. März 2020)

  • ISBN-10: 1472838386
