6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Terrence C. Francis on March 30, 2010
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Some great photos, but given the extensive sourcing, the selection of photos is mediocre. It's a matter of themes, I suppose, but some of the photos are really peripheral to the title or they don't have much merit either artistically or historically. I thought there would be more of the sea rather than shore themes.
I would also refer readers to Alan Villiers' the Last of the Wind Ships ( Harvill)- some really surperb and evocative photos put excellent text.
