MASTING, MAST-MAKING, AND RIGGING OF SHIPS

Tables of Spars, Rigging, Blocks, Chain, Wire and Hemp Ropes, etc.,
Relative to Every Class of Vessels
by Robert Kipping, Naval Architect

While the whole title of this work describes it as Rudimentary, this really refers to the dictionary definition in use at the time of "referring to first principles" rather than our modern usage of half-hearted, mediocre and basic. While substantially smaller in size than Steel  it still contains all the information necessary for you to properly spar than 48-gun frigate you've been dreaming of! Many tables for sizing and numerous woodcuts, many of them applicable to the small, traditional cruising cutter. Numerous woodcut illustrations.  Kippings other seminal work is Sails and Sailmaking.
