Freeston, Ewart C.
Prisoner-of-War Ship Models, 1775-1825.

Lymington Nautical Publishing Company: 1973.

A well-illustrated, standard study of these unique and beautiful models, relics in bone, ivory, wood, straw and tortoiseshell of the French and English Napoleonic-era wars. Freeston dug back into period records and made many surprising discoveries about how these models were made and by whom, and for what reasons. The heart of such a book, of course, are the models themselves, which are nicely illustrated here with many close-ups showing their intricate and astonishing details.

Hardcover. 8.5"x11", 174 pages, 1 color and many b/w illustrations, dj. Light wear.
