The theory and science of naval architecture familiarly explained and intimately blended with the art. Together with observations and practical conclusions, tending to the further improvement of ship-building, and to the constructing of ships for fast sailing. With important hints for the proper management of ships at sea. Designed for the assistance of the practical ship-builder, the attention of the man of science, the use of the nautical officer, yachtsman, and amateur, and for the benefit of all interested in shipping. The whole made easy, clear, and intelligible, to common capacities. By Isaac Blackburn, (Late of Plymouth,) Ship-Builder.
