Opis produktu:

An account of the purchase by the Navy of the merchant vessel Bethia and her subsequent conversion into a naval transport The Bounty, as she was renamed, was made eternally famous by the mutiny against Captain Bligh in 1789.  

This book is fantastic for anyone who is interested in building a model replica of HMS Bounty. The first couple of pages contain beautiful black and white photo's of HMS Bounty in her prime and history relating to her. The rest of the book contains layouts on how she was built with very fine drawings, details and sketches of the ship. Also includes transcripts about the ship. I highly recommend this beautiful book on this ship if you are interested in building the replica of HMS Bounty ot just to have if you have a stong interest in HMS Bounty well worth the money, best £20 I spent on a book of this kind.

 

About the Author

John McKay is an architectural draughtsman by profession, and this training undoubtedly helped with the production of a series of techical drawings for three volumes in Conway's Anatomy of the Ship series; on the Victory, the frigate Pandora and the armed transport Bounty. His book on the Victory took nearly five years to complete and involved more than 3,000 hours of work, but resulted in what remains perhaps the most comprehensive documentation of the ship to date. John lives near Vancouver, Canada.
