This item is not just a book of 90 pages that you read. This item consists of: 1) a paperback monograph of 63 pages in English, 2) a set of 26 superb drawings that are used for constructing a model of the Bonhomme Richard at a scale of 1/4" = 1', 3) a color sheet that shows the colors used 250 years ago on French-converted-to-American sailing warships, and 4) a buckram cover for all the foregoing. The monograph (book) is not hard back, it is soft back. The stated publication date of 1988 is in error, the actual publication date is 1987. This "information package" will give you as complete a picture of the vessel known as Bonhomme Richard as captained by John Paul Jones in the battle with HMS Serapis off Flamborough Head as will probably ever be known.
