Surveyor of ships to Lloyd's Register and with a lifetime of experience in shipbuilding and repair, Heinrich Paasch was the first to recognize the need for a universal dictionary defining the vocabulary of ships. This facsimile edition of his work, first published in 1885, provides an explanation of all the principal parts of a ship's structure and equipment for both sailing and steam vessels, including propulsion machinery, rigging and even knots.
