      Jim/Sara,
      "The American Sailing Navy" by Howard Chapelle is more concerned with the
      construction of sailing vessels and covers the history of the United States
      Navy from the Revolutionary War to the 1850s. Very good on detail if you
      need to know the sail plan or draught or deck layout or spar dimensions etc.
      of any vessel but little history of the men who sailed them. The book
      contains over 200 plans and drawings.

      Stick to Brain Lavery's "Nelson's Navy" for details on how ship's were run.
      You may also try "The Illustrated Companion to Nalson's Navy" by Blake &
      Lawrence, an attempt to give more illustrations of what Lavery explains and
      less reading. (Some
      of the drawings though look like they were done by a 5 year old!)

        These are probably the Mangin ones, are they? Executed by a naval
        parson; though an interesting record of life on board at first hand
        by one who had lived it, he was certainly no Nicholas Pocock, one
        must concur.
        Regards,

          Not really. The artist actually does his own rendition of others artwork.
          For example, the Purser by Rowlandson can be found on page 102 of Lavery's
          'Nelson's Navy'. The artist drew his own version for the 'Illustrated
          Companion' and it's somewhat harder to make out the face and details.
          Actually titles it 'A Purser, after Rowlandson'. A lot of renditions are
          done, some good and some.....

          But there are a lot of diagrams, tables, other drawings and pictures. Nice
          to have.
