These shipbuilder reprints are always delightful … and so informative. Packed with all the information of the Original shipbuilder issue …and then supplemented with info from Mark Warren. These books never disappoint! Excellent large copy with original dustcover with minimal wear.
Nice Picture-coffee table book of all sorts of ships built and sailing in the 20th century …with a nice section on ocean and cruise ships. It looks like this was printed in 1977 … and given as a gift to a Lars Berger for Christmas that year. It is inscribed to “My Favorite future Ships Master … I hope he made it! Good condition and covers all sorts of maritime craft.
Great inaugural book for the Star Princess when she joined the fleet in 1989! Built at St Nazaire … she was the crème de la crème when she was new. This excellent book not only covers her building and design in detail … but gives us an excellent yet brief historical look at the industry and the P&O fleet.
Interesting log book given to passengers with pages of port and destination information and blank pages for diary and other notes to be added. This on is pristine and free from all notes. There is a light spot on the dark embossed cover … almost looks like it was a “bleach” spot … but I’m not sure what could have caused it LOL! Very interesting and in good condition. Lovely engraving like images and script inside.
Nice little timetable for the little Dutch Passenger- cargo vessel.

Such a great little early Modern cruise ship … the Golden Odyssey. Greek owned and staffed … she sailed successfully for many years.
Both the Volendam and Veendam sailed for HAL for many years after starting their lives with Moore McCormack. Bother would also be sold and charted to other cruise lines and had very long and successful lives.
Sadly, she only sailed as Atlantic for Chandris for a short time (after the Enormous rebuild effort) … however she sailed for many years out of Miami for different owners under different names.
Great early press rendering for the ChiChiBu Maru … and one-off Japanese liner, she was lost in WW2.
Interesting photograph of the Norway (ex France) at night … as she is docked and taking on Bunker C oil. Certainly, an early Norway Photo … as her decks have not been raised and she in her original NCL funnel color scheme.

Lovely repo color photo of the stately Bremen V … rebuilt from the French Pasteur … she was a real German looker. Eventually she was sold to the Greeks and sank on the way to the scrapyard.
Lovely little repo poster featuring one of MM’s square funneled ladies of the 1930’s. would be lovely framed.
Great brochure with deck plans that covers 3 “Costa” ships (2 under Charter): The Carla C (ex Flandre), The Angela (Lauro) and the Chandris “Amerikanis”. All 3 ships offered different cruise packages sailing out of San Juan. NYC agency stamp on the back … light foxing to the covers.
