a new tome!

Found out about the existance of this book, “Eighteenth-Century Rigs and Rigging” while doing a little reseach, in my attempts to update some wikipedia entries regarding some of the more esoteric old sail and rigging designations.
i’m keen to see a copy sometime, and see how it expands on the classic Lever’s tome. From the write-up, it sounds like it covers many other rig types (not just classic square rigs), and (gasp!) is written in plain modern english, unlike Lever’s, which can come off sounding a bit antiquated to the novice.
