This book describes the author’s graphical reconstruction of the seventeenth-century English warship Sovereign of the Seas. The ship was remarkable in that it was the first to mount100 guns, was the largest of its kind at the time, was lavishly decorated, and was also extraordinarily expensive. These attributes attracted great attention during the ship’s life and after and this is certainly not the first attempt to render the vessel in graphic detail. The history and principal documentary and visual sources—often contradictory—are explained in the first three chapters before the author lays out the basis of his reconstruction more thoroughly.
