These 3 wonderful sister were designed by George Sharp for the Southern American and African routes leaving out of New Orleans. The Interiors of these ships were the most modern in their day, great condition with a few small wrinkles.
Great little brochure for the Eastern (the St Lawrence to Buffalo) and Western (Lake Erie to Lake Superior) Routes for the CSL. In excellent condition.
WSL offered similar sized brochures for their post ward “BIG 3”: Olympic, Majestic and Homeric … as well as a larger deluxe “brown” edition for the 3 ships. This one is in great condition … the interior photos are excellent.
Excellent unused early Postcard for the palatial President Liners. Refurbished 535’s from WW1 formed the foundation of the Dollar fleets ATW and orient Services.
2 unused Postcards for the lovely Indy. Excellent condition.

Wonderful Operations key and fob from the SS United States …this one for the Engrs Testing Lab on D deck. Keys are quite common for the passenger cabins … not so much for the operations areas of the vessel. This key is in excellent condition..
Wonderful Operations key and fob from the SS United States …this one for a trunk room on the Sports deck. There is a little blemish to the lettering. Keys are quite common for the passenger cabins … not so much for the operation areas of the vessel.
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.
Nice deck directory for the SS Norway … complete with a simple starboard profile cutaway.
Lovely SS France Postcard … from a painting done in 1997 by John Batchelor. Brand new and in excellent condition.

7 delightful Breakfast and Luncheon Menus for meals aboard the Statendam from December 22- December 31, 1961. Delightful and colorful artwork printed along the tops of each one.
Excellent set of menus spanning April 7th-April 10th, 1956. There are 3 Breakfast Menus (April 8,9,10) … 4 lunch Menus (April 7,8,9,10) and 4 Dinner menus (April 7,8,9,10). 3 of the dinner menus have a partial folding flap describing artwork found onboard the ship and the 4th is the Gala Night dinner menu. Nice full set in excellent condition.
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.
Dated for April 30th, 1966 … this menu is packed full of culinary delights for the Farewell dinner night celebrations onboard. Written in both German and English and Lovely like new condition.
