From the cover: This well-illustrated collectors guide covers a wide range of nautical decorative arts and navigational instruments. The book spans the period from the sixteenth century to the present day with an emphasis on the golden age of production between 1800 and 1940. These more modern pieces are readily found in specialist shops and auctions and are therefore more affordable than earlier and rarer pieces.

The book is divided into eight chapters, covering ship models, navigational instruments, ship fixtures and fittings, marine arts and crafts, ocean liner artefacts and ship portrait painting.

A concluding chapter lists public and private collections where marine art can be seen and provides information on its purchase internationally. There is also practical advice on the restoration of these artefacts.

A much needed publication, this book will be of interest not only to collectors but to all those connected with ships and the sea.
