Sinopsis: The Beaver, the first steamship to appear on the West Coast, represented a pivotal advance in coastal trading for the HBC. Built in Britain as a sailing ship with masts and rigging to cross the Atlantic, she was also outfitted with a steam engine and paddle wheels, and was a pioneer in the transition from pure sail to mechanical power.
The book is presented in two parts, a hardcover volume and a series of 42 full-scale folded plans. Plans, drawings and illustrations of the ship have been produced by John McKay, including every aspect of her construction, engines and rigging.
This beautiful book will be sought by all those interested in ship design as well as modellers.
