One of the best “builders books” ever done for a ship …. the rebuilding and refurbishment of the SS Leviathan. This copy was owned by CF Dutton … the quartermaster onboard from 1923-1924. There are a few placed where CFD has added noted to the margins .. which just makes this item even more special. The booklet tells of the ships history through her extensive refurbishment by WF Gibbs. The cover is taped by the owner many, many years ago. You can bet this book was on the ship with him!

Very nice deck plan booklet done for the 4 sisters. IMO, these ladies were pretty ugly with their original stove pipe funnels … and not greatly improved when a more conventional funnel was fitted later in their lives. The brochure itself is in excellent condition.
