Nice brochure for the Norway for the 82/83 season. She was the largest cruise ship for many years .. and raked in millions for NCL over her long career. A little scuffing to the cover … but still in good condition
A nice colorful deck plan for the lovely Lurline. California agency stamp on the rear cover .
One of the best “builders books” ever done for a ship …. the rebuilding and refurbishment of the SS Leviathan. This copy was owned by CF Dutton … the quartermaster onboard from 1923-1924. There are a few placed where CFD has added noted to the margins .. which just makes this item even more special. The booklet tells of the ships history through her extensive refurbishment by WF Gibbs. The cover is taped by the owner many, many years ago. You can bet this book was on the ship with him!
Great gray deck plan for the little Viking Princess. She only sailed a few years before burning to a crisp. Dated 1964 with a Baltimore Maryland Agency stamp.
Certainly one of the most ingenious and interesting deck plans ever done for a ship … and of course for the Normandie herself. These are quite lavish and hard to find in good condition … this one is top drawer! The French Line publicity spared no expense on the Normandie ever.
Lovely little fact and figure booklet that was given out to prospective passengers. These were both used before the maiden voyage as intro booklets and after the Maiden voyage as fact booklets … this one is dated after the maiden voyage. Excellent Lester Beal design for the worlds most modern liner.
Nice photo holder for the Matson Line … Probably the Matsonia or the Lurline shown on the cover surrounded by a floral lei.
A nice little collections of items from a trip on the Big U. TWO newspaper announcements for Sophia Fungaroli, the passenger who went to see her daugther in Scotland and then tour Europe with her other daughter that live in Kansas. These items were tucked into an SSUS airmail envelope with 2 Cabin Class dining room seating tickets and some European stamps.
A nice preliminary set of deck plans for the soon to be completed SS United States. Designed by Lester Beal there are nice blue monochromatic images of the ships interiors. Great like new condition
Lovely full colored Lester Beal designed deck plans for the Tourist Class areas on the mighty Big U. These are the glossy covered version … so they probably date to the later 50’s or early 60’s. Excellent condition.
Excellent brochure showing off the Tourist-Third Interiors for both companies in the later 1930s (book is dated June1938).. The photos are well divided between the 2 companies … and the 3rd class rooms look quite impressive. There is a little soiling to the covers but in good solid shape.
Great booklet of the History of the NGL’s’ five ships named Bremen.Text in English and German. Packed full of good history!
Excellent brochure plan for the Homeric … Home Lines publicity department created these exceptional plans all throughout the 60’s and into the Mid 70’s for all ships in their fleet. The Homeric would catch fire before these cruises were completed though. Excellent Like New condition.
Great CC deck plans for the sweetheart SS America. The covers for USL deck plans were redesigned by Lester Beal just before the SSUS came into service with their colorful RWB design and American eagle symbol. Nice Interior Black and White Photos. These are dated November 1952.

Nice deck plan folder for the MS Kazakhstan’s Bermuda Cruises in 1977 . She was the newest Russian Cruise ship at the time. Like new condition .. could have been printed yesterday
Nice flyer for several mini cruises in June of 1979 out of NY harbor. Great deck plans inside, I think the Russians were trying to appeal to the Americans with their Red white and blue brochure coloring.
Nice little Menu for a 3rd class lunch dated 11/20/1935. Love the little note on the bottom that says ” Please do not smoke in the Dining Room”. Lovely image of her near sister , the Bremen IV surrounded by golden accents on the cover.
Nice sailing folder dated May 10, 1939 … a few months later all these sailings would be off the table as the Nazi regime would begin WW2. Many of the ships listed here would not survive the war … the largest loss was the Flagship Bremen IV. A shame indeed. Good condition with some normal signs of use and age.
Excellent tissue deck plan for the littler Berlin. Bought from the Swedes, she started the German services after WW2 after a little freshing up and a new coat of mustard colored paint on her funnels. Excellent condition … looks to have never been opened.
Lovely sailing folder dated 4/15/1930 … just over 90 years old! Of course, the 2 newest German flyers … Bremen and Europa top the long list of ships. some writing on the cover.
