Few ship types have ever held the public imagination like the crack vessels of the nineteenth century tea trade. The trade had to wait for nearly a century for a historian to sort the fact from the romance, to analyse objectively the relative merits of the ships and the economic factors that shaped their design.

This edition of The Tea Clippers is revised and expanded, and includes three times the number of illustrations in earlier editions.

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.
