Book Description :

“McKay’s artful renderings provide a fitting tribute to this amazing vessel and those who participated in her planning and construction.” —Pirates and Privateers Sovereign of the Seas was the most spectacular, extravagant and controversial warship of the early seventeenth century. The ultimate royal prestige project, whose armament was increased by the King’s decree to the unheard-of figure of 100 guns, the ship finally cost the equivalent of ten more conventional warships. A significant proportion of this total was spent on her gilded decoration, which gave the ship a unique combination of firepower and visual impact in battle that led her Dutch opponents to dub her the “Golden Devil.” It is unsurprising that such a high-profile ship should be well-documented, but there are no contemporary plans and much of the visual evidence is contradictory. In this book, John McKay sets out to analyze the data and reconstruct the design and appearance of the ship in a degree of detail never previously attempted. The results are presented as a folio of superbly drafted plans, isometric drawings and colored renderings, covering every aspect of the design from the hull form to the minutiae of sails and rigging. Each section is accompanied by an explanatory text, setting out the rationale for his conclusions, so the book will be of value to historians of the period as well as providing superb reference for any modeler tackling of one of the most popular of all sailing ship subjects. “A magnificent book on a magnificent ship.” —Nautical Research Journal “Very few books of warships contain the level of detail provided here.” —Firetrench

Book Description :

For Christopher Newly, a wiry, redheaded British lad of nineteen, signing on to a ship while on the lawless Island of Tortola in the Caribbean seemed to be the only way to reach his goal of securing a better life than the one of indentured servitude he had left behind in England. Little did he know, the Jolly Roger flag hoisted above his head at dawn and Captain Ethan Pike, the captain of the Sovereign of the Seas, would make him wealthy beyond his wildest dreams and set him down on a path of breathtaking adventures beyond the realm of any imagination. This rags to riches pirate tale takes place back in 1799, when the golden age of piracy was coming to its end. The HMS Sovereign of the Seas was King George's prize possession until Captain Pike relieved the king of her. Captain Pike's map of the sea leads the crew on a perilous quest, with the witch of the sea, Miranda, following their every move. Newly tells the lighthearted tale, fit for the entire family, of the crew's search for the four keys of the sea. Their adventurous journey takes them across the Caribbean Sea fighting off the British Navy and finding unimaginable adventures, wonderful scenes, unbelievable horrors, and magnificent treasures. If you dare, the map of the sea awaits you!

Book Description :

No ship, large or small, goes to sea without some benefit of Britain's illustrious four-hundred-year-old tradition of seafaring enterprise and ingenuity. As he did in his highly successful earlier books, Waterloo and Trafalgar, David Howarth has woven together the colored threads of a vast tapestry figured with men, treasure hoards, unexplored coastlines and wild and smoky battles. Sovereign of the Seas begins as a book about British sea power and turns into the story of the British Empire and the tale of the adventuresome men--the admirals, captains, explorers, seamen and pirates--who manned the ships and mastered the waves that the world came to regard as Britain's own. Sovereign of the Seas does not assume a deep knowledge of maritime history. Each period--medieval, Elizabethan, the age of Nelson, the reign of steam and iron, the now-faded ideal of Pax Britannica--is excitingly described through stories of individual ships, sailors, voyages and battles. Lavishly illustrated with 24 pages of color and 24 pages of black-and-white plates plus maps, Sovereign of the Seas is a dramatic and international tale told with enthusiasm and flare by a master storyteller. -- Inside jacket flap.

Book Description :

Sovereign of the Seas was the most spectacular, extravagant and controversial warship of the early seventeenth century. The ultimate royal prestige project, whose armament was increased by the King’s decree to the unheard-of figure of 100 guns, the ship finally cost the equivalent of ten more conventional warships. A significant proportion of this total was spent on her gilded decoration, which gave the ship a unique combination of firepower and visual impact in battle that led her Dutch opponents to dub her the ‘Golden Devil’. The vessel was the poster-child of the notorious ‘Ship Money’ tax, raised without parliamentary approval and so unpopular it was a major factor leading to the Civil War in which Charles I lost his sovereignty and his head. In that sense, she was a ship that cost a kingdom. It is unsurprising that such a high-profile ship should be well-documented, but there are no contemporary plans and much of the visual evidence is contradictory. In this book, John McKay sets out to analyse the data and reconstruct the design and appearance of the ship in a degree of detail never previously attempted. The results are presented as a folio of superbly draughted plans, isometric drawings and coloured renderings, covering every aspect of the design from the hull form to the minutiae of sails and rigging. Each section is accompanied by an explanatory text, setting out the rationale for his conclusions, so the book will be of value to historians of the period as well as providing superb reference for any modeller tackling of one of the most popular of all sailing ship subjects.

Book Description :

Recently widowed, Iris lives with her two children at the edge of the sea notorious for wrecking boats and drowning swimmers. Sean loves to swim in the turbulent sea and talks to his animal friends; while Lily has inherited her father's love of books--and of the forest. With the help of Madhu and the town's colorful psychic, the family tries to get on with their lives in their isolated home; that is until a visitor drowns. The sea hasn't claimed a life in seventeen years. Something has changed, and now the weather won't let up. As the mother of all storms descends, something stirs deep in the forest. Sean and Lily find themselves becoming unsuspecting pawns in a struggle between land and sea, as the interweaving tale of a family separated by a terrible twist of fate some five hundred years ago, finally begins to unravel.
