Facsimile Reprint of original 1768 edition of Tractat om Skepps-Buggeriet, and parts of 1813 English translation (Treatise on Shipbuilding). 102 pp, 1 leaf; 62 plates. Original cloth, folio. Very Good. 'In 1765, Chapman took leave of absence from his work as chief naval architect for the Archipelago Fleet based at Sveaborg (off Helsinki) to devote himself for two years to Architectura Navalis Mercatoria, a volume of drawings which, in Chapman's view, exemplified the best and most interesting vessels of the time. The work was published in 1768. The book contains 62 copper engravings depicting vessels and craft from both Sweden and abroad. Some were designed by Chapman himself, but many of them were vessels or types which he had encountered on his travels, or seen around him, and which had attracted his interest. The book covers everything from warships to cargo boats and small fishing craft. The drawings are divided into five main groups: - Merchant ships and vessels - Vessels for swift sailing or rowing - Privateers - Several kinds of vessels used by different nations - Launching and manner of rigging From the very beginning, the publication was intended for an international audience, and the table of contents accompanying the work was available in Swedish, French and English. The scale of each drawing was also shown in Swedish, French and British feet. The illustrated part of the book was intended to be followed immediately by a descriptive and explanatory text, but for various reasons there was a delay of seven years before the text was published. When it did appear, it was as one of the chapters in a book entitled 'Tractat om Skeppsbyggeriet' (Swedish National Maritime Museum Web site). N° de ref. de la librería D00492
