en Limba Engleză Hardback – 09 Oct 2014
A brand new volume describing the eventful history of one of the world's most famous and celebrated ships from her construction at Dumbarton in 1869, her famous tea voyages as well as those with other cargoes, through to a career under a Portuguese flag and subsequent return to the Thames, Greenwich, the dramatic fire, painstaking restoration and glorious reopening in April 2012.The book has been developed from the outset with the Cutty Sark Trust and takes the form of a chronological career narrative but also presents detailed features on crew accounts, log entries, pieces on seamanship, ports and cargoes and broader tall ship culture as well as an opportunity to focus on artifacts and the fittings of the ship.This unique opportunity allows the first publication of specially commissioned photography created as part of, and subsequent to, the clipper's restoration as well as the findings of resulting research.

Notă biografică

Dr Eric Kentley was formerly a curator at the National Maritime Museum, in a variety of roles from ethnographer to Head of Ship Technology and Corporate Planner. After 16 years he moved to London's Design Museum as Assistant Director, responsible for the museum's curatorial and education programming. Since going freelance at the end of 2001, he has specialised in interpretation projects. His involvement with Cutty Sark began in 2003 when he assisted with the development of the plans for the conservation of the ship and he went on to play a major role in the interpretation of the ship, including authoring the exhibition content. Eric is the author of several books, including Eyewitness Boat, Cornwall's Bridge and Viaduct Heritage and Discover the Titanic. He lives in south London.


Substantial and beautifully illustrated.
A wonderfully illustrated narrative.
