Leather split along joints; boards scuffed along the edges; pages very lightly rubbed, but overall internally bright and clean. Illustrations include the HMS Worcester and Green Company Line; Allan and National Lines; Anchor and McBrayne's Highland Lines; Cunard and Orient Lines; Dominion and Inman Lines; Donald Currie's and W. & A.

Of maritime interest, of course, but also a wonderful look at the fashions of the period. Bookseller Inventory # D4405
