Interesting little vinyl “purse” . Certainly something that would have been bought onboard or given as a gift to a passenger. This is padded in subtly textured black and gold vinyl … with “Home Lines: script in gold on the interior. There are plastic interior pockets. Quite unusual and quite lovely.
Excellent sailing booklet for the Italian fleet in the 1963 season. This is tabbed per class and ship! Excellent Leo aft deck photo on the cover.
Interesting Boston Sailings folder for the Saturnia and Vulcania for 1963.One tiny little ship profile and also info on 4 special cruises around the holidays.
Nice flyer for 1976 Carla C Cruises in the Caribbean.. Lovely mod squad graphics and a few pictures. Once the French Line Flandre … this lovely lady spent some time with Costa.
Nice flyer for the January 1977 Country and Western Cruise of the Federico C. Lovely mod squad graphics and a few pictures. The cruise featured Bill Anderson and Mary Lou Turner.
Lovely little flyer for the 5 lovely ships: Federico C, Angelina Lauro, Flavia, Carla C and Amerikanis. Super 70’s graphics. great cruises out of San Juan and Pt. Everglades.
Lovely little flyer for the 3 lovely ships: Federico C, Angelina Lauro and Flavia. There cruises were staged from multiple American ports: NYC, WDC , Philly and Baltimore. Super 70’s graphics.
Lovely DP brochure for the beautiful Federico C’s 10 and 11 day Caribbean cruises in late74 and early 75. Lots of of lovely interior photos and information about the ship. Great Profile and deckplans as well … super colorful and 70’s graphics throughout.
Lovely souvenir items for the “cruise ship of Tomorrow” the ss Oceanic. She was just one of the most beautiful ships ever built in the 1960’s.
These hard melamine tip trays were very common items in the 70’s and later and could be purchased onboard. Excellent condition.
Interesting Used Album for the lovely Homeric (ex Mariposa). One of my favorite vessels … she had such a nice long 2nd life with Homes Lines … and certainly raked in the cash for them. The cover of this album has the official rendering for the ship in the cover that appeared in many brochures and travel agency portraits. This has been used and there still are a few Homeric items inside. Most pages have some yellowing and tape residue left from items that have been removed. Perfect to Build your own Homeric Album.
Superb Lunch menu for the lovely flagship. Written in both Italian and English … the menu has over 50 culinary delights. Excellent cover art by Silvio Pollomi. About 2 years and 2 months later she would be on the bottom of the Atlantic
Costa Marketing produced some of the finest brochures in the later 70’s and 80s … and this one for the Daphne sure is stunning. There are 16 pages of color interior photos as well as color coded deck plans. A beautiful cruise ship, she started life basically as a freighter for the Port Line. The text and information is written in 3 different languages: Italian, German and English: From 1979 when she joined the Costa fleet Excellent condition.
Probably the best brochure ever done for this later Home Liner … the SS Atlantic. Designed and based on the marvelous Oceanic of 1965. The interiors renderings are magnificent! These are somewhat hard to find … a few nicks to the cover.
The ultimate cruise line souvenir for the 70’s and 80’s were these little melamine trays. They are almost indestructible and offer the use a myriad of uses. I use mine as coin trays as well as around the house for coasters. Always great graphics … lots of folks relaxing in the lounge on some beautiful furniture!

Outstanding heavy metal dish for the lovely Federico C. The ship was the first new build for Costa and eventually was sold off to Premier as the Big Red Boat. High quality and excellent condition.
Super nice dish for the Costa Rivera… once Lloyd Triestino’s Guglieimo Marconi she was rebuild for Costa in 1985. Super nice and made by Sambonet and includes info card.
Probably the ultimate souvenir you could have from your voyage onboard would be one of these high quality and detailed models. These were probably also used at local travel agencies.
Excellent condition! $125
3 great photos.. the first is an artist’s rendering of the ship … a lovely drawing of the ship steaming along calm seas. The second and third show the captain and a gentleman pictured next to the funnel on her maiden voyage. I am sure the gentleman has to be an important Home Lines official to enjoy the company of the ships master on Her Maiden Arrival in NYC.
Lovely photo of the ships Maiden arrival into NYC. Fully flagged and tug boats off the starboard side, the ship looks pristine!
One of the photos shows the lovely ship docked in Genoa the other is of her Lido Bar. I love the furniture… look at the 3 legged tables, LOVE! Only the furniture side shown.
One used and one unused postcard showing the Angelina. The used card is dated 1976 …a few years later she would be a burned out hulk. The unused card shows her anchored at Nassau.
Once Bill moved on from the Dover style picture books .. he worked with Carmania press to offer the next series of Passenger Ships “insert county here” style books. these are every bit as nice as the earlier Dover books .. and maybe even have a little more info about each ship and general history. full of great B&W photos. In great shape and signed by Bill on the inside to one of his shippie friends.
