Great Gala Menu dated June 9. 1962. Lots of good food … Captain Alexanderson in charge. A small stain inside … could be a spot from wine.
Super lot of menus … 3 Breakfast and 4 luncheon from a voyage in November of 1954. These folks ate very well. In nice clean used condition.
2 SSUS Ephemera items for the ship dated in October of 1957. There is a breakfast and a Luncheon menu … packed full of interesting foods as well as an onboard newspaper filled with ship and world news. All in good shape.
So famous was the SSUS when she was launched, many manufacturers capitalized on her image and story. This needle packet is almost complete and bears a cartoony image of the mighty ship! IT Sparkles!
One of the best cut-aways ever done for a ocean liner is this very detailed and cartoony Logan Reavis one for the SSUS. The foldout is packed with BW photos and info on the ship … as well as the Hales Trophy. Excellent condition!
A nice collection of documents from a SSUS voyage in August of 1953. This includes 3 menus (Gala dinner, Lunch and Breakfast) onboard compliments card and a Divine service mimeo program. All are in good condition.
Lovely set of 6 menus … some from the Brazil and some form the Argentina . There are 7 total ( one is a blank) .. though one is hiding in the photo as only six menus are shown (damn the camera man). The art work on these menu’s is the real prize!
Good DP for the SSUS dated March 1952 … just months before her maiden voyage. This would be a great early DP to use for reference purposes. This has some staining to the cover .. that does bleed into the interior pages. Priced accordingly.
A good solid mini deck plan for the Big U! It was folded oddly at one point and has a few edge blemishes so I’d judge it to be in average plus condition .. a good item for reference!
Great lovely set of deck plans for the American “sunlane” sisters. Excellent condition.
The BEST brochure ever done for America’ Proud speedy Flagship. Designed and filed with renderings by Lester Beal .. this is a world of 50’s graphic design at its best …24 pages of glory with an unforgettable centerfold of the ship that would make Hugh Hefner blush! Exceptionally Excellent Condition.
Even in 3rd class … these folks ate like royalty. Excellent Graphics… made to look like an officers uniform sleeve, with gold banding and star.
Great Cabin Passenger list for the voyage leaving Hamburg July 18th 1931. Great Compass Graphics.
Lovely cabin Passenger List for the voyage Leaving Hamburg July 8th, 1930 and a nice Concert invite for June 15th.
Lovely set of postcards for both sisters … shown with hulled, so later in their careers.
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.
Excellent copy of the best book ever written about the SS United States by impassioned author Frank O. Braynard. This is still the go to work on the ship from her (and WF Gibbs) early history to her sale to US Cruises in late 1979. Fancy wrapped dust jacket and excellent condition … I’m sure this was once someone’s cherished copy.
Great like new copy … this was a basic republication of FOB’s thriller “The Big Ship”, with some added text from Preservationists Robert Westover and Susan Gibbs. Susan is still fighting to save the vessel her grandfather designed and built! Please help join her …www.savetheunitedstates.org. Excellent book!
Excellent color and Portrait President Van Buren Writing Paper and Envelope. A little yellow discoloration from age … but excellent overall.
Excellent and rare deck of cards for the Merchants and Miners Line! The cards are all present and in excellent condition for being open and lightly used … The box is not in great shape at all.
Great 1959 copy of the America’s Miniature deck plan. These plans subtly changed year to year with refits, updates and new photography. Great shape!
Famous A Look inside Logan Reaves cutaway for the SS United States. Several different versions of this cutaway were released over the ships lifetime … this is my favorite. Lovely and colorful.. The R/W/B colored cover has the Alyward rendering of the ship shown and the inside folks out with the Reaves cutaway of the ship … and other ship info and Hales trophy info as well. Superb!
Great set of early/preliminary plan for the Cabin class areas of the mighty ship. This is dated January 1952 .. almost 7 months before he Maiden Voyage. Great condition!
Nice set of miniature deck plans for the USL Gibbs-designed consorts … the speedy and somewhat Spartan SSUS and the lovely intimate SS America … both were out nations sweetheart liners. These mini plans are in excellent shape.
