SS United States

United States Lines: SS United States “The Big Ship” by Frank Braynard.

This book was a labor of love for Frank … and certainly one of his best. WFG’s Brother Frederick was the force behind the book … and Frank took on the project whole heartedly. The dust cover has some rips and tears buy the book itself is solid … a true classic!

United States Lines: SSUS Pre-Maiden Small Beal Brochure

Excellent little Lester Beal Pre Maiden voyage brochure  and its original envelope for the mighty SSUS. Beal was a premium American  graphic artist in the 1950’s  … and he did brochures and other designs for USL ( even designing the cabin soap wrappers). These brochures were used after the Maiden Voyage and through the mid 50’s.  There is a hand written note on the back that says “what a ship” .. I could not agree more.

United States Lines: SS Leviathan Builders Book – Brochure

Probably the most detailed and through book on the “refit” of the Leviathan for passenger service. The Americans were certainly proud of this magnificent war prize that gave our nation our first giant flagship. WF Gibbs was on cloud nine as well. Packed with lots of historic info and filled with pictures and period ads etc. The cover has a little wear, a bit of the lower left hand side is detached from the binding.
