In 1546, at a crucial point in the history of the navy, Anthony Anthony, an officer of the ordnance, compiled a complete visual record of the royal ships in three separate rolls. In this volume, all 58 ship illustrations are reproduced in colour, with their accompanying texts on the facing pages. There is also a full transcript of an inventory of the King’s ships from 1514 and essays on topics including Anthony’s artworks and the Ordnance.
