Item description for The Complete Encyclopedia of Steamships: Merchant Steamships 1798-2006 by John Batchelor & Christopher Chant...

Overview
The Complete Encyclopedia of Steamships: Merchant Steamships 1798-2006 comprises some 125 merchant ship types, from the start of powered merchant ship types, from the start of powered merchant ship designs like small tugs and larger passenger vessels to modern giants such as great and luxuriously appointed cruise ships, and ultra-large crude carriers for the delivery of vast quantities of crude oil. This is the story of merchant ships in their first steam-powered forms, with driver paddle wheels and then propellers, to the great transatlantic liners, the immigrant ships and tramp steamers, to modern vessels with diesel or, in a few cases, nuclear propulsion for tasks as varied as icebreaking and the carriage of outsize single freight items.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Complete Encyclopedia of Steamships: Merchant Steamships 1798-2006?

GOOD BASIC OVERVIEW OF DESIGNS  Sep 14, 2009
THIS BOOK OFFERS A GOOD, SIMPLE OVERVIEW OF THE PICTORIAL CATEGORIES OF EARLY AND MODERN STEAMSHIP DESIGNS. THE READER SHOULD NOT CONFUSE THE TITLE WITH STEAMBOATS. THIS BOOK IS FOCUSED MORE ON BRITISH, COMMERCIAL SHIPS AND NOT AMERICAN LINES. SINCE STEAMSHIPS EVOLVED OVER THE YEARS (DUE TO ENGINE AND TURBINE DESIGN IMPROVEMENTS), THE BOOK HELPS READERS SEE THE EVOLUTIONARY CHANGES. THE ONLY NEGATIVE THOUGHT INVOLVES THE USE OF THE TERM "COMPLETE" IN THE TITLE. IT COULD DISAPPOINT READERS EXPECTING TO SEE A MORE DEFINITIVE AND CATEGORICAL LISTING OF VESSELS.
