Travelling by sea in the nineteenth century: interior design in Victorian passenger ships by Basil Greenhill( Book )

14 editions published between 1972 and 1974 in English and held by 376 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Wooden sailing ships carried our adventurous forefathers across all the oceans and as far as Australia and New Zealand. What was it like to put up with such cramped conditions for months on end? What prompted our forebears to brave the cold North Atlantic? Basil Greenhill takes first-hand contemporary accounts, and numerous illustrations, many of them previously unpublished, to bring to life these hazardous early voyages. He deals principally with the development of the sailing ship and steamship in the nineteenth century, and delightfully portrays by both illustration and anecodote the gradual amelioration of facilities, accommodation and food on board. The days when the wealthy took their own furniture abroad, and the livestock, required for food on the voyage, were kept on deck, gradually change; the all-purpose saloons became libraries and music rooms, the wooden partitions give way to luxurious staterooms. And so the sailing ship becomes first a steamship, then a paddle steamer and finally a great ocean-going 'travelling palace'. By 1890 the interior decoration of passenger liners moved from the extravagant to the absurd. The photographs, rich in high Victoriana, have been selected from the National Maritime Museum's collection. This is a book which will be of interest to social historians and all those with a love of the sea, both naval and domestic, and those interested in Victoriana and interior design." --
