British Tramp Shipping, 1750-1914

Robin Craig

Liverpool University Press

Research in Maritime History LUP

  • This study explores the history of tramp-shipping in the United Kingdom between 1750 and 1914 and it defines 'tramp' as steamships exclusively hulled with iron or steel
  • The purpose of the journal is to keep the history of tramp-shipping from fading into obscurity, as the author believes the tramp steamer does not invoke sentimentality nor provide enough glamour to sustain the same level of maritime interest enjoyed by sailing ships or ocean liners
  • The volume is punctuated with statistics, tables, charts, glossaries, and concludes with a bibliography of author Robin Craig's further maritime writing
