Shipping Economics by Kevin Cullinane (Editor)
Publisher: JAI Press (July 19, 2005) | ISBN-10: 0762311770 | PDF | 1,3 Mb | 226 pages

Shipping is by far the most significant mode of transportation for the carriage of freight. In terms of volume alone, no other mode comes close. Its dominance is even more overwhelming when distances are accounted for. This book is concerned with the economics of this pivotal mode of transportation. It reveals that the influences on the development and current state of shipping economics research are extremely eclectic. The various chapters in the book represent areas that are of central concern to ongoing research in the field. As such, the book is useful to students, researchers, industrialists, policy makers and consultants. Details
Ships of the Royal Navy: A Complete Record of All Fighting Ships of the Royal Navy from the 15th Century to the Present

J. J. Colledge, Ben Warlow - Ships of the Royal Navy: A Complete Record of All Fighting Ships of the Royal Navy from the 15th Century to the Present
Chatham Publishing | 2006 | ISBN: 186176281X | 415 pages | PDF | 150 + 122.61 MB

This is the fourth fully revised edition of a book first published in 1970. This longevity is testimony to its enduring value as a reference work-indeed, 'Colledge' (as the book is universally known) is still the first stop for anyone wanting more information on any British warship from the 15th century to the present day when only the name is known. Each entry gives concise details of dimensions, armament, and service dates, and its alphabetical and chronological arrangement makes it easy to track down the right ship (otherwise the Royal Navy's tradition of re-using the same names can be misleading).

Ross Watton "The Aircraft Carrier Victorious (Anatomy of the Ship)"
US Naval Institute Press | October 15, 2004 | English | ISBN: 0851779964 | 160 pages | PDF | 110 Mb

The distinguished career of the carrier Victorious extended from World War II to 1967. A major refit during the 1950's, saw her emerge as the Royal Navy's most advanced carrier in the world. The author's drawings show all the changes which she underwent during her long career, while the text focuses especially on her war service which included a number of daring airstrikes, most notably against the German battleships Bismarck and Tirpitz. Later she sailed for the Far East where she was part of the British Pacific Fleet; there she withstood several kamikaze attacks. The Anatomy of the Ship Series: This highly acclaimed series aims to provide the finest documentation of individual ships and ship types ever published. What makes the series unique is a complete set of superbly executed line drawings, both the conventional type of plan as well as explanatory perspective views. This is the first attempt to document a ship - literally down to the nuts and bolts. These drawings are accurate, visually exciting and totally comprehensive, offering ship buffs, historians and modelmakers a novel insight into the technicalities of each ship type covered.

Conway Maritime Press | 2001 | ISBN: 0851778968 | 134 pages | PDF | 159.03 MB

The Endeavour, made eternally famous by Captain Cook's first voyage in her in 1768-71, was originally the collier Earl of Pembroke and was chosen by Cook for his voyage because of her strong construction. She was purchased by the Royal Navy at Whitby and then converted to an exploration ship at Deptford. After her voyage she was sold out of service in 1775, and finally condemned sometime in the 1790s. This revised edition features accurate, visually exciting and totally comprehensive drawings. In addition to these, a colour representation of Endeavour on the jacket provides a useful painting guide, on the back of which is a beautifully folded large scale plan of the ship. The 'Anatomy of the Ship' series aims to provide the finest documentation of individual ships and ship types ever published. What makes the series unique is a complete set of superbly executed line drawings, both the conventional type of plan as well as explanatory views, with fully descriptive keys. These are supported by technical details and a record of the ship's service history. Karl Heinz Marquardt is an internationally known ship modeller and has spent a lifetime researching the era of the sailing ship. He is an accomplished draughtsmen and has illustrated a number of highly praised maritime books. Details
