This book, which is impossible to find in its original form, is now available to all amateurs of naval history. Jean Boudriot first chose to publish this monumental work as it is a general survey of all theorical and practical knowledge of the navy at the end of the 18th century.
An unequalled documentary set.
Works by the most outstanding specialists in the field are gathered in this encyclopedia. It is a complete library published under the patronage of the Academie de Marine.
Abundantly illustrated
VIAL DU CLAIRBOIS gathered 1500 figures in 175 high quality plates, dealing with all naval topics : plans; building; frameworks; masting machine; rigging; ropemaking; sails; great guns; manoeuvring the ship and fighting tactics.
Three fact-filled volumes
Engineers, builders, sailors, administrators and jurists provide extensive knowledge, facts and figures in a 2400 page text of a rare density. The authors of the METHODICAL ENCYCLOPEDIA cover all topics. This book allows us to get to know the engineers' science ; the harsh realities of shipboard life ; the wages of a ship's boy or of an admiral; the contents of the ship's surgeon's medical case. We also discover that a captured vessel brought a few pounds to the seaman but made the captain or the admiral much richer.
