A new monograph, The Saint-Philippe -1693, by Jean-Claude Lemineur (Ancre).

You can find more information at https://ancre.fr/en/monograph/93-le-saint-philippe-1693.html

I cannot resist and I have just made the order.

I apologise if this is not the proper place to write news.

Beautiful monograph, as usual. Stunning looking ship.

 

But I've noticed the Ancre goes out of their way to avoid ships of the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Periods. They are nearly all late 17th Century to mid-18th. The only exception is the lovely little brig Cygne, circa 1806, and the Creole, 1828. I get it. They like the fancy carvings of the period, as do I, but I'd also like to see frigates and corvettes of the Age of Nelson. But I wonder if they are also avoiding a historical period in which the French Navy didn't perform all that well. In so doing, they omit some of the most beautiful and technologically advanced ships of their day. A little wounded national pride, me-thinks? I hear rumors that a 24-pounder frigate from just that era may be in the works. Fingers crossed ...

Hello,

 

This is quite true for the project, I am working on the monograph of a frigate of 24 "L’Égyptienne". The plans are almost finished, it remains the writing of the text.
Expected release early next year but not at Ancre Editions but under my name as usual since 2006.

Hello Mr Delacroix. I don't know if you remember I asked you about an estimated release date. No doubt, it's a great news! I keep on expecting this new monograph. Thanks for this information.

I've noticed the Ancre goes out of their way to avoid ships of the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Periods.

The only rebuttal to this is

La Venus  -    is of Hebe class   and  was of the Revolution period  and was the basis of a huge number of RN frigates extending past 1815.

   My complaint is the monograph et al. = there is no Body plan of just the stations inside the planking -  even the supp. plans set while having lofted frames,  which is fine for most,  just duplicates the original monograph at a different scale  - the RN take off  = Leda  needs a ton of work because time has been unkind.

 

The 74 Gun Ship  is the Temeraire class - also  Revolutionary  

 

not ANCRE but Delacroix  - Commerce de Marseille  - 118 gun big boys of both periods.

Frolick:

 

They do have an "add-on" for the La Venus monograph which provides additional drawings.  I don't have that one, just the original.

 

There'is the La Belle Poule monograph in which the plans are set for bulkheads, not frames.  Le Renommee of 1744 has a monograph. And there's the latest frigate monograph for L' Hermione.

 

I'm not sure it qualifies as true frigate but also Bonhomme Richard.
