First published in 1973, Fast Sailing Ships received the Best Book of the Sea Award for its important contribution to our knowledge of nineteenth century maritime history.

This edition, revised and expanded, brings back into print a book now recognised as the definitive work on this subject.

Celebrated maritime historian David MacGregor wrote a great number of books around all classes of ships built in the nineteenth century. The David MacGregor library in the Brunel Institute at the SS Great Britain is named in his honour.
