JANE'S FIGHTING SHIPS 'THE BEGINNINGS OF'

If you are the type of individual that is interested in 'Ship History as well as ship data'...and you have a soft spot for "Naval Warship Interest," then I'm sure you've either picked up a "Jane's" book a time or two...or maybe you own a few ...as I do.

Well these 'handbooks' or some individuals even considered them 'bibles of the trade'...were first published in 1898 by John Frederick Thomas Jane.  The ships described in minute detail in every aspect of every Naval machine existing at the time.

This is how these 'handbooks' of Mr. Jane evolved from 1898 to present day of over a 100 different publications form Jane's Fighting Ships and Jane's All The World Aircraft to Jane's Armor & Artillery and Jane's Space Directory.
