The best history of American yachting from its beginning into the 20th century is the series of articles called "Traditions and Memories of American Yachting," by William P. Stephens. The series appeared in Motor Boating magazine nearly every month from June 1939 through July 1946. Motor Boating put all but 10 of the articles into a book with the same title as the series. This book has been out of print for a good many years and much-sought-after copies come onto the secondhand market only rarely. This edition of Traditions and Memories of American Yachting includes the complete set of 83 articles with both the greatness and the typographical imperfections of the original presentation to Mr. Stephens' readers; biographical sketches of the author; and Cyrille White's index to the opus, so that you can look up, rather than having to search for the many names of yachtsmen and their yachts and the many intriguing facts recorded by Mr. Stephens.
