The plans for the USS Constitution in the book were certified by the US Navy as the only authentic plans for model builders when the book was originally published in the 1920s. Some of the information on ships like the Viking ships, Santa Maria, and Mayflower has been changed by recent research, but overall it is an excellent reference, especially on the USS Constitution. The plans that came with the kit I am building are not the best, and I often have refered to this book to clearify things.
One of my next projects is a clipper ship and I will be using this book for that one also.
I have a 1927 edition of this book and the printing quality was very good.
