Schooner By Engineer de la Morandière 1823 HISTORY OF THE SCHOONER IN THE FRENCH NAVY.
MONOGRAPH METHOD OF MODEL BUILDING
This monograph is intended for those who want to practice ship's model building but do not have extensive experience. A basic model building method is included for them in this monograph.
With a little care and skill, the method leads to the construction of a model from prime quality material, since wood will be exposed on a planked hull. This monograph must be considered as an initiation to "the art of model building".
Confirmed ship's model builders will also be interested in the elegance of this small schooner, created by its fine underwater hull and its light rigging. They should find the lines of Jacinthe quite appealing.
Those readers who are more specifically interested in naval archeology will find in this monograph a necessary addition to previous studies, as it deals with brigs, cutters, and luggers. These constructions complement the building of schooners. The historical and technical study of this type of ship is given with an extended iconography.
