Hardcover with gilt lettering. 9″ by 7″ w/ 6 pages of yacht names, its owner, designer, builder, and specs. Plus 60 pages printed on heavy paper to 1 side only. WITH 240 PICTURES OF YACHTS.

Steam & sail yachts. 6 pages of yacht names, its owner, designer, builder, and specs. Plus 240 pictures of the yachts – 4 to each page, printed on 1 side only, by the famous photographer Stebbins. (1847 -1922) was a noted American marine photographer. Whose surviving photographs document an important era in the development of American maritime activities, as sweeping technological and social changed revolutionized activity on the water, in military, commercial and leisure spheres. Over his working career as a commercial photographer (from 1884 to 1922), he took approximately 25,000 images. Of these, about 60% were of marine subjects (the majority of those being of leisure activities, but many are of military and commercial scenes, a valuable record for historians). Please zoom in on. Photos carefully as they are part of the description. All of my books are VERY OLD and have 100+ years of wear to varying degrees. Good to very good condition…. For its age [124 years old]. Boards – very secure, a few spots to the back cover. Pages secure – but cracked in the middle, I don’t know if this is how it was bound, or if someone long ago tried to sew it back together – see picture #10. Spine ends – worn down. Not too bad, just worn through. Inner hinges – pretty good back, front one taped. Pages – generally very clean. Rips /folds – no rips that I saw – on the 1st 10 pages, the wee tips are bumped, this includes 5 of the pages with photographs / the ffep’s wee-tips are chipped. Gilt on cover still bright -it has a slight odor, there’s help! Read about smells below. A VERY RARE ONE FOR YOUR YACHT’S LIBRARY! Please Add me to your Favorites list. AND check back now and then to see what’s new! Otherwise I can’t send you a new invoice. Don’t panic, I will get to ASAP. T can take up to 14 days to get back East. All others please contact me. This book is very old and. May have accumulated bad smells along the way [musty basement/ mildew/ smoke]. I have found that. Dryer sheets in them for a few months makes a world of difference! My nose doesn’t work like it use to. So the old book smell doesn’t bother me. As far as I can tell -this book has a slight odor, I have had dryer sheets in it for months and it is smelling better already!
