143 pp "This is the first volume in a 12-volume encyclopedia encompassing the historical, technological, and cultural aspects of the ship. The volumes are conceived to follow a strict chronological sequence, and this one deals with the early forms of water transport in different parts of the world, but predominantly in northern Europe. It examines how their development evolved in conjunction with the economies of the societies which built and operated them. Coverage also includes problems of reconstruction and the estimation of performance."
