The Hudson's Bay Company's 1835 Steam Ship Beaver

The Hudson\'s Bay Company\'s 1835 Steam Ship Beaver
Common in the merchant fleets of her time, "Beaver" was remarkable as the first steam vessel to challenge the remote, largely uncharted coasts of the Pacific northwest. She was built in England 1835 for the Hudson's Bay Company. Although few photographs remain, enough documentation exists to reproduce "Beaver" in this book as a fine example of early marine steam engineering. With drawings, detailing every aspect of this vessel - hull, engine, paddle wheels and original sail plan, drawings of "Beaver" are included here both within the book and in a select series of separate, large-scale plates.
