Nice plan for the Norway ( ex France). Printed in 1998 when she was still sailing like clockwork and raking in the cash for NCL Hard to believe that’s 22 years ago! Nice condition.
Certainly one of the most ingenious and interesting deck plans ever done for a ship … and of course for the Normandie herself. These are quite lavish and hard to find in good condition … this one is top drawer! The French Line publicity spared no expense on the Normandie ever.
January 1952 deck plan for the 2 sisters printed on heavier tissue paper that has tinted with age to a nice golden brown. This looks like was never opened.
2 Ile de France baggage tags that have been stuck back to back. One for Mrs. Wm. Rosenthal and one for Misses Jan and Sandy Handmaker … interesting both parties occupying cabin 40.

Dated September 1st 1963 the exquisite cuisine was stated in both French and English. The gorgeous cover still life was by Michel Ciry and prominent artist of the day. The date would have been would have been just about a year after her Maiden Voyage.
French Line acted as agents for these 2 exquisite yachts that could be charted to travel the world! The Nicely done black and white interior photos and deck plans are encased in a heavy cardstock and color cover. An interesting item!
Definitely one of the best and only books available in the Mid 1980’s about the exquisite Normandie. A must have and read for any serious collector. The dustjacket has a few bumps and tears and the book is in great condition.
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. They 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!
Great Publicity photo for the Rhapsody // formerly the Statendam and prior to her being sold to Regency Cruises. What a long life she had … and thankfully many of her original fittings were save by Peter Knego when she was scrapped in Alang.
