Using art works dating back to the late 1400s Basil Lubbock follows the progression of shipping development up to the late 1800s, when the great clipper ships dominated. Naval occasions are included as are many other aspects of seafaring in the various sections covering voyages and circumnavigation, trade and trading companies, perils of the sea, whaling and early arctic exploration, buckaneers and pirates, privateers, smugglers and slavers and clipper ships. A poem from John Mansfield provides the preface and Basil Lubbock introduces his study with a 35 page historical summary. The bulk of the book is occupied by 115 plates, 24 of these pages are devoted to colour art reproductions, tipped in on high quality art paper and protected by tissue sheets carrying the related caption.
