Nice little rate folder for the HAL 1962 season .. released in October of 1961.
Great 1959 copy of the America’s Miniature deck plan. These plans subtly changed year to year with refits, updates and new photography. Great shape!
Famous A Look inside Logan Reaves cutaway for the SS United States. Several different versions of this cutaway were released over the ships lifetime … this is my favorite. Lovely and colorful.. The R/W/B colored cover has the Alyward rendering of the ship shown and the inside folks out with the Reaves cutaway of the ship … and other ship info and Hales trophy info as well. Superb!
Great set of early/preliminary plan for the Cabin class areas of the mighty ship. This is dated January 1952 .. almost 7 months before he Maiden Voyage. Great condition!
Almost nothing beats the exquisite 1950’s – 60’s deck plans that were done for the SS United States . These are full of full color photos and color coded plans as you would expect. Excellent condition with and Illinois Agency stamp.
Nice set of miniature deck plans for the USL Gibbs-designed consorts … the speedy and somewhat Spartan SSUS and the lovely intimate SS America … both were out nations sweetheart liners. These mini plans are in excellent shape.
Great little souvenir pencil for the Giant QE. The little ship once floated in an oil substance … that has long since dried up and disappeared. Hard to clearly photograph..Still works!
Excellent book of French ship interiors covering a little over a century from the 1891 La Tourraine to the French built 1998 Vision of the Seas. Outstandingly done .. the photographs of Interiors and furniture, artwork and some fittings are just delightful. Don’t miss the section on the Ile de France or Normandie. Of course written in French .. this is a hard to find book. A tiny little scuff to the cover is the only blemish from use.
Once of the best books written about the ship … certainly a book Billy poured the good parts of his soul into (with keen FOB Oversight). The forward is by Margaret Truman Daniels.. Harry’s daughter who was on the SSUS maiden crossing. Well written and lots of great photos. excellent author unsigned copy. An excellent read of the ships life until the early 1990’s.
A super great copy of the Superliner United States Billings book. The dust jacket is intact … though cello taped in a few spots and kind of scuffed. A great read … especially from the standpoint of the ship being new and the true pride Americans had in their achievement. Great line drawn renderings inside.
Excellent Home lines double deck playing card set . The back side shows a lovely stylized view of either the Homeric or the Italia. Both were 50’s money earners for Home Lines! The cards are in excellent shape. The cover of the box is also emblazoned with “Home Lines”.
This is probably the best North Atlantic fleet brochure for the CP ladies in the 1930’s . Filled with photos and info .. many of the Newest “Empress Of Britain”. The cover shows a beautiful scene of the EOB passing the CP hotel “Château Frontenac” in Quebec. CP probably had the best world wise transit system established in the 1930’s There is also a huge colored fold out map. Excellent shape for the age … this has been well preserved.

Multi- Line folder for cruises (and related Air fares) for 1966. Excellent condition and full of lots of cruise information!
NGL’s first post war flagship … the little Berlin … would have been SAL’s diesel driven Gripsholm. She was updated and scrubbed clean after WW2 and made her way to the Germans by the mid 50’s. great little folder describing the revitalized German service with lovely color photos … the profile of the ship is wonderful!
Interior folder for HAL’s 2 original post war experiments .. slower steady ships with lots of tourist space. The b/w. photos of interior space are lovely … these ships would have made HAL a lot of cash .. and certainly influenced both Statendam and the later Rotterdam.. Greta little fold out in super condition.
Lovely Deck plan brochure for the Angelina which at the time was still owned by Laura and chartered with Costa. Inside there are lovely color deck plans and interior photos showing passengers at play. The ship had a few good years of cruising left before she would meet her blazing demise.
Costa Line Multi ship folder for South American cruises in late 1977-early 1978.
