Book description
The classical XVI century treaty on naval warfare written by the portuguese priest Fernando Oliveira, an expert on shipbuilding and seamanship of his time. An adventurous person, this priest was once captured at sea (the galley where he travelled was taken after a sea battle) and eventually brought to England where he met the court of the English king Henry the Eighth who even employed him on that occasion. He certainly met the english shipbuilders and exchanged ideas with them: the mackerel hull profile was used both in his book "ars nautica" and in the classic english treaty authored by the english shipbuilder Mathew Baker.
