    The title makes me think of 'The Anatomy of Nelson's Ships' by C Nepeon Longridge. Another book packed with very specific and detailed information.

    In my opinion the Conway book about the Victory is the rotten apple in their collection. It's photgraph section contains no recent images and consists almost entirely of pictures taken by C Nepean Longridge and his colleagues and placed in a library collection when they were surplus to his book. This is not adequately acknowledged by Conway who also incorrectly claim that there was no adequate reference work on the ship when they prepared their book.
    Although in an older graphical style Longridge's drawings are also significantly more informative.
    Sorry, but I have both books and feel quite strongly about it.

    Is this the revised edition from 2002 or an earlier edition?

    The book to which I refer has nothing to do with the Conway book. I do not know to what you refer. The 'Anatomy of Nelson's Ships' is a classic published by Model and Allied Publications Ltd. Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire, England.(13-35 Bridge Street)

    It was originally published in 1987

    No sweat J.L. The Anatomy of Nelson's Ships is the "good guy". :lol:

    I have the Conway book. It is a very valuable resource for anyone interested in detailed drawings of the Victory.
