Ocean Liners: By Olivier Le Goff

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.

Excellent condition.

Ken Schultz: Catalogue 36 “The Normandie Issue”

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!

Georgian Bay Line: Michigan History: Remembering The Georgian Bay Lines

Lovely several page article w/ photos on one of my favorite Great Lakes companies ..the GBL. There twin sisters The North American and South American were fixtures on the lakes till the mid 1960’s .. the GBL also operated the Alabama in the 40’s .. and used her as a parts ship for the other 2 boats until their demise. Once of my biggest regrets was not making time to visit the South American in the early 1990’s before she was finally scrapped.

Ken Schultz Catalogue number 45.

Ken sure did put together a great array of items coupled with some serious East Coast attitude. If you didn’t already know what a nice guy he was … he had no problem telling you. Ken passed away about a decade ago. Wonderful items and descriptions! The catalogue is almost collectible as the items are! As typically happens .. a few of the pages are loose.

Cunard White Star: IMM Stock Certificate

75 shares of IMM stock would have been a nice little investment back in the day … now just interesting to collectors for the 4 funneled ship image and its tie to the historical company. one edge of this is a little wrinkled .. but could be flattened easily (especially if framed). The 4 funnel ship is a nod toward the Olympic … but looks a bit more like one of the German 4 stackers.

Society of Friends of Old Steamships: Story of the Queens Catalogue

The culmination of selling tools for Gene Darcy’s Ocean liner “wares” would be this catalogue he produced showing many of the items available for purchase. He started is company selling items scrapped from the Queen Mary in Long Beach and then added other ships and items after the initial sales successes. From the somewhat humble start,  greed and growth soon set in and many of the later items he added have been proven to be of fictitious historical provenance .. though some of these later “replica”  items have now become collectible as well.  The catalogue is in excellent condition and provides a fantastic glimpse into items sold.
