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.
7 dinner menus from the QE2’s 1908 ATW cruise. The earliest menu is dated Jan 21st, 1980 and the latest menu is dated April 5th. These all come with glossy covers … each one with the typical ware from use onboard.
Lovely interior flyer covering both Queens, the Mauretania and the Caronia. Great color Photos of a selection of interiors!
Excellent brochure that covers the first class interiors and accommodations on 7 CWS ships: the Britannic, Mauretania 2, both Queens, Caronia and the little sisters: Media and Parthia. Lovely BW photos and fact for all seven ships. Good condition with a crease along the left side of the entire booklet.
Cunard sure lavished great marketing material on the Canadian Quartet .. and these color deck plans for the Sylvania as no exception. Lovely colored plans with rich color photography of several of the interior passenger spaces. Excellent condition.
Lovely hard covered booklet given to FC passengers at the end of their voyage … there is a pocket in the back for menus and programs etc …alas in this copy no goodies are stuffed in. Excellent full page color photos of the interiors and ship fact info etc.
Outstanding thick brochure covering the 1936 ATW crusie in detail. Several pages of info are lavished on the ship … the remaining mostly cover the ports and destinations … and several pages round out rates and misc info. Excellent condition… The only issue is the cover is loose from the booklet staples.
Lovely interior photo fold out for the little twin first class sisters. The fold out is printed on heavier stock with Green hues and golden lettering and details. Great condition … looks to never have been opened.
Lovely interior photo fold out for the “Green Goddess” cruise ship. The fold out is printed on heavier stock with Green hues and golden lettering and details. Good condition with a tiny tear and small pinholes at the fold lines.
5 QE2 onboard photos featuring Notorious Dicky Faber at some point during a cruise or crossing for Cunard’s 150 anniversary in 1990. Photo subjects range from cocktails in a lounge , dinner, 2 lifeboat deck scenes and a greeting with an officer.
Though happy at the time of the photos, it seems Dick’s later years were marred by his light-handed approach to “helping” himself to large parts of the Braynard collection under the guise of his fiduciary responsibilities. The online court documents and rulings make for interesting reading. Unfortunately for collectors, his shenanigans forever have altered the provenance of many, many items.
One of my favorite early items for the Green Goddess Caronia is this intro brochure … it just does not disappoint at all. It is filled with information on the ship … covering her building and launch and marvelous interiors. The interior renderings are mouthwatering and just ooze the essence of luxury that the ship would be known for throughout her life. Of course , the background colors are green … a nod toward her unique coloring … and details abound in rich gold-leaf. Through out the brochure the larger pages are separated with mini book mark like pages that call out specific details and even cover some on the art on board. The best brochure for Caronia collector. Very good condition with a few edge bumps and 3 mini tears on the front and back covers.
Probably the premium First Class ever created for the QE…. Printed in June 1956. The stiff leather like textured covers include golden lettering surrounding a lovely starboard profile of the mighty vessel.
Beautiful full color plans and Photos of the first class areas. Good condition.
One of Billy’s last Dover books .. this one dedicated to the lovely QE2. Packed and Filled with photos and pictures!
Lovely interior fold out for Saxonia when she was new in the mid 50’s. Her décor was pretty extravagant and certainly leaned Canadian … love the use of Maple leaves as a motif. One of the loveliest early for her … beautiful golden accents too!
Lovely large scale PL for the QE2 published for her Tenth Anniversary World Cruise. In excellent shape … she departed on January 17th and completed her voyage on April 8th. Lovely gold embossed detail on the cover .. I wish I could have been onboard.
Dubbed The Factual Story of a Great Ship” .. a nice souvenir booklet done for the Mary early in her hotel career in Long Beach. Certainly dated to the 70’s …. The ship has been through a few owners since then … including Disney. A good quick reference guide to her service history and early LB years.
Excellent copy of the famous book done in the mid 1990s by author James Steele. This book is exceptionally well written and loaded with excellent photos, graphics and lovely artwork. This is printed on super high quality paper and is hardbound. A must have for any Queen Mary Lover … one of my favorite newer books on the Mary.
Super little brochure for the wonder ships queens Mary and Elizabeth. Chock a block full of facts and tidbits. This is dated 12/64. Within 5 years both ships would be retired and gone form the Atlantic.
One of my favorite Evers prints for the Queen consorts …. Showing them passing in mid-ocean. In good condition ( some fading and a little moisture blemish in the corner) this print comes from the exclusive Peter Knego collection and made in the “Getting there is half the Fun” era. I will have the quote shipping for this item specifically … the site shipping calculator will not be accurate.
Great little oversized flyer for the Franny’s 1967 Easter Cruise to Bermuda.
Lovely school kit … certainly purchased onboard for a lucky little kiddo .. I wonder why it was never used? Contains a pouch, pencil, sharpener, ruler and eraser … all adorned with a lovely likeness for her majesty! Never used in original packaging!

This 9day cruise left NY on November 17 for 9 days. John Maxtone Graham (ick) would have been a lecturer onboard and Carl Evers Maritime artist was also a guest.
