"Over the years, Welles Henderson, the author of this intriguing book, noted that the majority of maritime museums throughout the world placed their emphasis on ship paintings, ship models, figureheads, navigation equipment, nautical tools and weapons but gave little insight into the daily life of the ordinary sailor. For over four decades, therefore, he has been collecting material in an attempt to fill the gap. This book is richly illustrated in color, with material taken for the extensive Henderson Collection, and includes many items never before publicly displayed or published."

Sinopsis: Welles Henderson focuses on the ordinary individuals who manned and worked the ships, while at the same time recognising the heroes of maritime history. He follows the story of seamen through manuscripts, journals, diaries, log books, rare books, paintings, prints, sketches, wood carvings, ceramics, textiles, scrimshaw, medals, instruments, ship models, statues and photographs. The book is richly illustrated and much of the material is taken from the Henderson Collection.Each chapter focuses on separate aspects of a seaman's life aboard ship and ashore in the age of sail and early steam, from about 1750 through to about 1910 and conveys the flavour and feel of life aboard.The author started his collection at the age of seven. It is now recognised by maritime experts as 'unique, the finest of its type and world class'. He decided to found the Philadelphia Maritime Museum in 1960 and it is now an internationally recognised institution and an important part of Philadelphia's waterfront development.
Sinopsis: Illustrates aspects of a seaman's life, aboard and ashore, in the age of sail and early steam.
