About this Item

Book is very clean and nice with no bumps to corners and no names or writing other than AUTHOR's SIGNATURE and inscription which reads thus, "Cordially yours, David A, Randell May 21, '67." Ptinred on beautiful heavy paper with lovely nautical painting in full color at front reproduced from a painting by J.K. Lilly, an avid bookman who liked to compile his collections from lists. Upon learning there was no list for books about the sea, ships, and seamen, he undertook to compile one himself. It was released at Christmas 1966. Book is comprised not only of the list, but also a recounting of how it came to be, who contributed to it, and how it grew in the process. Unpaginated. Bookseller Inventory # 19602

Store Description

Garrison House Books has maintained an on-line presence since 1997. We are a general interest used, rare, and out-of-print bookstore based in the quaint Victorian town of Medina, Ohio. American history, children's books and ephemera (the history of the people) intrigue us most, but we buy and maintain books in all categories. We are Tess and Eric Kindig, married forever, and passionate about books, bookselling and readers. Tess has been a newspaper reporter, magazine writer, and public relations director, and is still a working author with 13 published books to her credit. Eric owns Log Cabin Inc. in Lodi, Ohio, an 8,000-plus square foot retail establishment specializing in historical books and reenactment accoutrements. In addition to his remarkable ability to schlep large piles of books from hither to yon, Eric brings over 30 years of retail experience to this endeavor! Also, joining our staff are our beloved bookshop kitties -- Miss Lil and Mickey. The former provides gentility and elan, and the latter (who is basically a street thug) provides comic relief. We believe that books are treasures, not commodities, and that readers are individuals, not numbers. Our greatest joy is in getting to know you and serving you with grace and good humor. We appreciate your business very much!
