Buchbeschreibung 1928 Brown, Son and Ferguson Glasgow, third edition, bound 422 pages, with illustrations and plans. this is Lubbock’s detailed history of one of the most famous tea and wool clippers in history, the CUTTY SARK, now preserved at Greenwich. She was considered by 19th century seamen to be the finest and fastest clipper ever built in Britain, and the author examines her log-books and brings together first-hand accounts from those who sailed in the ship during her heyday. In her later years she was sold to foreign owners and during the early 1920’s interest in the ship was re-kindled when she was spotted under the Portuguese flag in Falmouth - the years failing to diminish her beautiful lines. This book is illustrated with many interesting old photographs and other plates, in addition to scale plans of her sails and hull. In a chapter entitled A Hell-Ship Voyage, there is more drama than any fictional story of the sea could produce, a fact not lost on Conrad who took the true events of the tragedy narrated here and wove them into one of his sea-stories.
