The seaways were the first global network and they were irrevocably linked the destinies of geographically and culturally distant people. “The History of Seafaring” is the definitive volume on navigation and exploration and recounts the motives that drove Europeans to seek routes to the far corners of the globe and in particular the seamanship that made their voyages possible.
Fully international in its approach, this outstanding book pieces together the advances in astronomy, navigation, shipbuilding, seamanship and cartography down the ages to tell the fascinating and absorbing story of mankind’s relationship with the sea.
This story is presented in an elegant format and is richly illustrated with a beautiful selection of rutters and portolan charts, photographs of ship’s instruments and artefacts, and maritime paintings.
