michaelpsutton2 Posted December 30, 2014 Share #1 Posted December 30, 2014 Just rec'd my copy of this book by James Bender. This volume is very similar to the four volume series British Warships in the" Age of Sail". There are listings for all of the major Dutch warships of the period. There are pleny of Van de Velde drawings and paintings. Unfortunately there are only a couple of plans because the Dutch did not use plans in the way that the English did. The book will make a fine addition to my bookshelf and the introductory price on Amazon is more than fair. I had hoped for a little more information on Dutch rigging and fitting practices though. I don't have nearly the same quality of sources as I do for English ships. flying_dutchman2, trippwj and Farbror Fartyg 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
