Made eternally famous by the mutiny against Captain Bligh in 1789, Bounty was a small merchant ship purchased and converted into a naval transport to transplant breadfruit to the plantations of the West Indies. Thanks to good surviving documentation, this book can depict the ship when purchased as the mercantile Bethia and also as fitted out for her unusual naval employment.
This revised edition features accurate, visually exciting and totally comprehensive drawings. In addition to these, a colour representation of Bounty on the jacket provides a useful painting guide, on the back of which is a beautifully folded large scale plan of the ship.
The 'Anatomy of the Ship' series aims to provide the finest documentation of individual ships and ship types ever published. What makes the series unique is a complete set of superbly executed line drawings, both the conventional type of plan as well as explanatory views, with fully descriptive keys. These are supported by technical details and a record of the ship's service history.
