Jacket flap blurb:

Few things are more satisfactory to look at than ships. Old and new, large and small and of every sort, they can delight the eye as much as anything that man has ever made. This book discusses their design; not from the special point of view of the naval architect, shipowner or seaman, but from the unspecialised point of view of the man or women who likes to look at them. It is a book for anyone, seaman or landsman, to whom a ship is a work of art; and that a ship can be a work of art, its illustrations will bear witness.
