General noteHoving selected the portions of Witsen's 1671 publication that deal specifically with Dutch shipbuilding and had them translated into English by Lemmers. Hoving then integrated this translation into a new text with commentary. "To reorganize Witsen's text, I have cut his entire work (except the irrelevant chapters ...) into hundreds of selected fragments and then arranged them in a new sequence that follows Witsen's own description of the construction process."--Introd.
