Illustration from THE SHIP-BUILDER’S MANUAL, AND NAUTICAL REFEREE. NY. 1856. Sepia frontispiece, b/w plates. Two vol. in one. iv, 200; 188, 2,2, pp. This is a rare work, not to be confused with the earlier (1850) and more common “Treatise on Marine Architecture.” In this book Griffiths concentrates less on the theoretical and more on the technical, “nuts and bolts”, aspects of construction. He includes material on timbers and timbering, scantlings, fastenings, spars, ground tackle, sails and rigging, and much more of the kinds of information that would be useful to an actual shipwright. This book also contains 17 sets of lines and diagrams. Brewington says, “Griffiths works of great value. Contain many plates of lines, details, masting rules, tables of off-sets, etc.”
