VERY GOOD: This book is in wonderful condition for its age and size. There is a small ding in the front cover which can be seen to the left of the word “MAN” in the picture. Otherwise this books is clean, without markings and no other dings.
If you have seen any of Stephen Biesty’s other cross-section works you know you will not be disappointed by this book. Complete with 10 cross-section pictures he provides an amazing tour of an 18th-century man-of-war. Each area of a cross-section has a description of its purpose accompanied by an overall description of the topic of the cross-section.
As an added incentive, Biesty added a wanted poster for a stowaway on the front inside flap. The stowaway is pictured somewhere in each cross-section of the book. Good luck finding him.
