A great brochure …Tiny and petite but contains some nice photography and info on all 7 cruises!
A great hardbound history book that traces the development and history of over 30 liners stating with the German Kaiser Wilhelm Der Grosse and ending with the Russian Aleksandr Pushkin. Of course all the big liners are covered Mauretania-Lusitania, Olympic-Titanic-Britannic, QM, Normandie , United States … but also some lesser knowns get attention like the Cap Arcona ,Felix Roussel, and Willem Ruys. The book ends with “tomorrow” a rather nice overview of cruise liners and the cruise industry.
Great little saucer for the ship of many names and owners. Royal Falcon Ironstone made by Weatherby Hanley England.
Great little pin dish for the ship of many names and owners. Falcon ware made by Weatherby Hanley England.
How glorious it must have been to “follow the sun” on the Caronia’s 1965 world cruise out of NYC …By the Numbers: 95 days, 21 ports, 15 countries for a total of 30,991 magnificent miles. The brochure is in great condition with a Trenton NJ agency stamp on the rear cover. Nice heavy glossy covers and color photos and route map inside.
Excellent little brochure deck plan booklet for these 2 little Greek goddesses. There charming interiors were homes to Luzzatti and other renowned Italian Artists of the time. Many of the artworks and furnishings from these ladies was saved form the Indian scrappers by liner lover Peter Knego. Great little brochure full of photos.
This excellent Brochure for the new “Century” has all the things you would expect: Lush interior renderings, excellent pull out cut a way of the ship, colored deck plans and excellent details about items like furnishings.
Reading the menu, you can almost taste the delicacies through their exceptional descriptions. The Luncheon took place at the Pier in NYC. The deep blue cover is embossed in copper with the ships profile and name. Excellent like new condition.
Ken Schultz was certainly one of a kind … and he never let you forget it! Love him or leave him, his catalogues did truly become “collectible” just as he always touted. There are excellent reference books and filled with good descriptions and photos … but by todays “internet” standards … the pricing here is a touch HIGH. Ken produced these by hand … so over time the pages do become loose … but this volume seems to be in really good order. Fondly know as the “Normandie” issue #35 mainly covers the French Beauty … but does cover other ships as well. There are some writings and “wish list” notes on the inside by a prior owner. Get it while it lasts!
Costa did a really nice job with giving each of their individual ships its own brochure starting in the 1960’s and continuing into the 70’s and 80’s. This one dates to the 76/77 season for the Carla C … formerly French Lines Flandre. It is full of color photos and information … but the 2 page fold out deck plans and sample cabin layouts and photos at the back are the real winner here. Nice condition with a Dover Delaware Agency stamp on the back.
The cruise departed to Bermuda from NYC on 4/19/1965 being billed as 5 days of “sun and fun”. You could have a deluxe outside Upper deck cabin for $280 (double occupancy) or a tiny little cabin for 115 on C deck (again double occupancy). Interestingly … the ball room was also on C deck. Nice condition with a tiny tear or 2 on the edge.
Great little list for the little combo liner for a voyage beginning 11 December and completing almost 30 days later.
Nice deck plans for the Italia dated April 1958. She saw both Trans Atlantic and Cruise service for Home Lines. Good condition with color coding for both First and tourist classes. Per passenger capacity for crossings was 1287 … and cut by half+ to 600 for cruises.
Nice deck plans for the Italia dated May 1962. The Homeric did almost full time “Sunway cruises” throughout her career with Home Lines .. and was a good profit earner for the company. This plan is printed on heavier newsprint and is in very nice condition … the blue coloring is a little faded at the edges in places.
Excellent plans printed on heavy tissue! Excellent details … right down to the tufts on the upholstered furniture pieces. Baltimore Maryland Agency stamp in one corner.
One of the last great true Italian liners .. the lovely Galileo Galilei. She and her sister Mariconi were stunningly beautiful and exceptionally decorated. The card is in great unused condition
Such a lovely Italian gal … the beautiful Ocean Princess. She sailed for long time under many names and owners (Costa for many years). The card is in great unused condition.
Excellent port profile of the gorgeous Colombo … one of my post war Italian favorites. Nice unused condition.
Excellent portfolio given out to those lucky passengers and guests that took the LAST Grand World cruise of the ships HAL career. Finely made, the portfolio it includes the original paper pad, pen and cruise pin.
Excellent unused baggage sticker showing a starboard forward view of the QE. Use on your modern luggage today to make it distinctive and easy to find.
2 lovely postcards for the running mates … other started life and Dutch colonial liners Willem Ruys and Oranje … Both met there fates too early and by fire. A nice set of oversized cards!
Interesting PL for the Bergensfjord’s 1963 ATW Cruise that started and ended of course in NYC. 18 ports were on the itinerary for a total of 26031 miles. There are lots of autographs and written notes in the back. This has browned a bit with age … very interesting little list!
Nice full colored deck plans for the NAL Flagship. No date on these … but I’m guessing mid to late 1970’s. Very nice and printed on glossy paper with fine color.
Lively scrimshaw cover on the Sagafjord brochure for the 1982 season. Covers all cruises over 30 pages and includes deck plans and cabin layouts. Very nicely done and in excellent condition. I would not be long before NAC was merged into Cunard.
Med cruise put on by the Caribia 2 … a ship rushed into Siosa service after the Caribia 1 was declared a loss. There are other cruises advertised on the rear cover for the old but reliable Irpinia. Very Nice condition.
