The subject of "Ships' is one of the most popular themes in modern-style, pictorial stamp collecting. This new and authoritative book, written by a dedicated philatelist with an inherited love of the sea and ships, is about ships on stamps. It describes all the different kinds of water-craft depicted on the postage stamps of the world, from the gufas of Babylon, the Nile boats of ancient Egypt, the longboats of the Vikings, and the gallers and galleons of the Mediterranean, to the "tall ships" of sail, the first chubby steamboats, the diesel-driver. tramps, ships of war and the latest ocean giants.
Stamps and Ships includes many fascinating stories of adventure and discovery, of Bligh and the infamous Mutiny on the Bounty. Columbus and the Santa Maria, the Mayflower, Nelson's Victory and other men-o'-war. Scott's Discovery and the other gallant vessels of Antarctic exploration are all to be seen on stamps. Beautifully caned and ornamented native craft, stately Axab dhows, and graceful yachts and trading schooners contribute to the romance and glamour of the Seven Seas. The Index - a manual in miniature - lists all the worthwhile Ships on Stamps, and is an indispensable guide to the collector.
