The History of Seafaring
Navigating the World’s Oceans
DONALD S. JOHNSON, JUHA NURMINEN
“This magnificent book tells the history of the seas and ships. It is richly and impressively illustrated with rare maps, old manuscripts, pictures of navigational tools and of course paintings of the ships themselves and pictures of their scale models. The result is simply striking.”
