In collaboration with the Museum, Seaforth is undertaking the first publication of this monumental work in a superbly produced multi-volume edition that captures all the qualities of the original. Every page is reproduced at full size, making the extensive hand-written annotation readable, while the fine-line drawings retain all the colours that Perkins used to denote appearance differences and alterations.
The sixth volume of the series covers all submarines up to 1939, torpedo gun vessels, the diverse types of gunboat (from masted gun vessels through coastal ‘flat-irons’ to river patrol craft), and sloops of various descriptions.
This is a publishing event of the utmost importance for every enthusiast and ship modeller, who for the first time will be able to own a copy of a unique and invaluable reference work.
