The Rise of the English Shipping Industry in the Seventeenth and Eighteenth Centuries , by Ralph Davis. The book fills a gap in the economic history of early modern England by explaining the role of this important and fast growing industry. It also provides a realistic account of the sober facts of the shipping business and its commercial background in early days, to supplement the literature on more romantic aspects of the sailing ship.
