SS Great Britain Manual

An insight into the design, construction and operation of Brunel's famous passenger ship

By: Brian Lavery

Isambard Kingdom Brunel's SS Great Britain was a world first when she was launched at Bristol in 1843. This uniquely successful passenger ship design brought together the leading technologies of the day (screw propeller, iron hull and 1,000hp steam engine) to transform world travel. She was a successful ship and continued sailing until 1886, travelling 32 times around the world and nearly one million miles at sea. Great Britain was finally abandoned in the Falkland Islands in 1937 but in 1970 an ambitious salvage effort brought her home to Bristol, where today she is conserved.

Hardback, 270 x 210mm, 250 pages, 160 col & 50 b&w Illustrations.
