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.
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!
An “grand” introduction brochure for the “Grand Princess”. 25 oversized pages of information about the ship and filled with public room renderings … this was not an inexpensive brochure to produce. Outstanding starboard 3d cutaway rendering of the ship followed by pages of interior renderings and 2 pages of color coded deck plans. good condition .. the only flaw is the protective vellum cover has a few small tears to the edges.
Nice brochure advertising several of the Irpinia’s (and Caribia’s) cruises for the 1973 season… Including a Christmas cruise and a African cruise. there are a few interior photos … but the majority of the photos are “ashore” and port photos. Brooklyn NY agency stamp. There is a 1″ seam separation along the binding edge.
Lovely “WIP” sign printed on heavier stock for the ss Norway … on a ship, there is always some sort of “work in Progress”.
3 lovely sheets of writing paper from the ss Norway. In excellent condition.
Lovely little PL for the dowager SS Nassau. The first half lists all passengers and notable crew … the second half lists “shipboard” information. Nice little item with age appropriate wear.
Lovely bow to bow starboard rendering of the 2 ‘sisters” sailing through mild seas … they seem to be racing the gulls flying at their bows. Nice unused condition.
Nice colorful fold out for the JQ … for her 1968 cruises to Nassau and of course, Jamaica. She was pretty small and very intimate little ship … I bet every passenger knew their shipmates by the end of their voyage. Mankato, Minnesota agency stamp (a town made famous by Little House on the Prairie and Laura Ingalls Wilder). Like new!
NCL’s pioneer on the 3, 4 and 7 day Nassau and Jamaica cruise runs. This folds out to include lots of onboard interior and activity photos …a s well as a very boldly colored deck plan. Dated form early 1968.
Nice early booklet for NCL’s Starward.. on of the ships that made NCL cash rich in the late 60’s and early 70’s … propelling them to buy the SS France and rename her Norway. Great little booklet that covers everything: onboard activities and some interiors, deck plans, rates etc, etc. Minnesota agency stamp on the rear (and looks like the same stamp on the cover only smudged a bit.)
Nice interior folder and deck plan for the lovely little Izarra. She was sailing out of Miami on 7 days cruises in the later 60’s … this folder dated July of 1968. Printer on textured stock … Nice color photos and deck plans and rate info etc. For being as modern as she was … some of her interiors and furnishings looked quite dark and traditional
Nice little photo album from Silversea cruises. Excellent condition
Lovely golden souvenir pin dish for the NCL Skyward. By the sunburst emblem on her hull … this would have been from fairly early in her career. Excellent condition
Lovely baggage tag from the much admired RVL. Excellent condition
A lovely blue and white deck plan for the lovely Greek Amerikanis. the plan itself is very detailed with furniture shown as well as nice pictures showing several of the public rooms etc. Lovely port profile rendering shown on the back cover!
Great blue and white Olympic deck plan agency stamped with Harmal Travel … which was located in the Rockefeller Center in NYC. Very nice condition … looks to have never been opened.
Very nice and simple Chandris/ National Hellenic American Line deck plan for the Amerikanis. printed in blue on white paper , these was a very simple and unembellished plan for the ship. Excellent condition with a little browning to the paper.
Nice Puerto Rico guide and cruise letter for the Waterman Lines. Undated .. but I’m guessing late 1950’s. 12 day cruise for $230 or 245 seems like a pretty good deal to me!
2 daily programs for the ship dated September 4th and 5th 1995. Love the winged funnels!
An excellent deck plan for the BSC Flagship … another ships that has an extraordinary long life. Much beloved … she is still sailing today. Excellent condition and printed in Finland of all places!
Just an eye-popping brochure for the old America … given a new and extended life by the Greeks as the Australis. The brochure includes many onboard public room photos (almost all of which were left as is by the Greeks). The Greeks made changes to the cabins in many areas … increasing capacity by adding berths as well as and reconstructing some below deck areas. There is at least on Large Facebook group dedicated to the Australis. Excellent condition… stamped “file copy”.
This was the first and by far the best brochure for the Lovely Victoria! She was completely rebuild from a classic 1930’s Union Castle motorship … into the modern and sleek Victoria. She cruised throughout her long life, finally ending her days at Alang in the new millennium. Includes the original mylar dust cover.
An excellent deck plan for this long lived ,Russian beauty .. like new! Interesting to note her boot topping is painted green.
