I've ordered both modeling books from ME, but I'm very interested in 17th and 18th century ships and their history. Galleons especially.  I was hoping to get a suggested reading list on historical ships not related to modeling. Thanks

I will see what I have that may be of use to you.  Are you interested in any particular nation?

Rob 206,

The Restoration Warship by Richard Endsor.

The Warship Anne by Richard Endsor.

Old Ships Figureheads and Sterns by L.G. Carr Laughton.

First Rate by Rif Winfield.

 

Two other books which may be of interest to you.

The Rogers Collection of Dockyard Models 1st and 2nd rates by Grant H. Walker.

17th and +18th Century Ship Models from the Kriegstein Collection by Arnold and Henry Kriegstein.

These books are published by Seawatch Books who advertise on this forum main page.

 

The Endsor titles are both available on Abe Books,didn't check the other two but they probably are too.

These should hopefully cover some of your 17th century interests.

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
