The 44-Gun Frigate USS Constitution – “Old Ironsides” (Anatomy of the Ship)

Author: Karl Heinz Marquardt
Publisher: Conway Maritime Press
Published: 2006

From Baird Maritime:

One of the well known Anatomy of the Ship series from the renowned Conway Maritime Press, this book is well up to their usual very high standard.

Part history, part specification, part design critique and part general arrangement and detailed drawings, this well presented book provides an excellent overview of this very famous ship.

Ordered in June 1794, 'USS Constitution' was delivered in October 1797 – a remarkably short gestation period by today's US Navy standards. Technically, 'Constitution' is still in commission.

A revered, restored and beautifully maintained operating museum ship, she is still called upon to perform ceremonial tasks. This excellent book covers her past and present very well.
