Setting Sails A Tribute To The Chinese Junk by Derek Maitland photography by Nik Wheeler South China Morning Post Publication for sale Setting Sails A Tribute To The Chinese Junk -by- Derek Maitland -photography by- Nik Wheeler. Hong Kong's official symbol is the Chinese junk, which dominated world trade a thousand years before the European nations had mastered the art of ocean voyaging; it incorporated maritime innovations like the watertight compartment, balanced rudder and spoon-shaped stern at a time when Westerners were still hugging coastlines in open longboats; the authors have compiled a graphic study of the Chinese junk covering its history, its triumph as a naval and trading vessel, its tragic death in battle with Western navies, its brief but fierce reign as a pirate vessel, and its lingering role as a stylised pleasure craft; includes cross sections of the vessels. (A South China Morning Post Publication, Hong Kong, 1981) No ISBN. Dust jacket is worn and chipped along upper edge and both ends of spine. Else in fine condition. Weighs 1.3 kilograms.
