The book is unusual in its attention to minute and authentic detail, supplying more than a thousand diagrams. Included are details and features of a typical whaling vessel of the Moby Dick era, river and harbor ferryboats of the double-ender type and, in removable inserts, complete working plans for a clipper ship, a Gloucester fisherman, a harbor tugboat, a dragger, and the "ironclads" Monitor and Merrimac.
