About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for WE'RE OFF TO THE FAR EAST ABOARD THE U.S.S. BENNINGTON. (Front board title: "USS Bennington CVA 20.") [Cold War-era 1955-1956 commemorative cruisebook - cruise book for the U.S. Navy Essex-class aircraft carrier USS Bennington CVA-20.] by Cruise Book Committee: E. Katz, E. Barz, P. Leitner, R. Handran, J. Keller. [USS Bennington - U.S.S. Bennington; U.S. Navy - United States Navy.].

Description:

First edition (not stated). 128 pages. Hardcover: H 31.25cm x L 23.25cm. White cloth (Kingskraft boards per publisher/binder crest at rear board's bottom right); some soiling to boards as well as some staining to rear board, spine heel bumped. A few spots of light soiling and staining to interior pages which, overall, remain clean. Binding is firm. A very good- copy. Publisher's imprint discreetly placed at bottom right corner of page 128. No publishing date provided but endpaper maps delineate the Bennington's 1955 and 1956 cruises so presumably published in late 1956 or, more likely, sometime in early to mid-1957. Features some color illustrations and numerous b/w photographs throughout of personnel, officers, etc. including sections for ports of call at Trinidad, Montevideo, Valparaiso, San Diego, Hawaii, Kyoto, Philippines, Hong Kong, and Okinawa. Apparently an uncommon if not scarce cruise book as OCLC does not cite any copies among member libraries; OCLC does cite Bennington cruisebooks for 1953-1954, 1957 ("The Log: A Pictorial Record of a Far East Cruise From October 1956 Through May 1957"), and 1958 ("Deploy!") with the latter two published in Tokyo. The [U.S.] Naval History and Heritage Command website no longer has their full Navy cruisebook bibliography posted online but they do have a list of ships and their corresponding cruisebooks in their collection and, for the USS Bennington, they cite cruisebooks (but not their titles) for 1953, 1954, 1957, 1958, 1958a, 1961, 1964, 1965, 1967, 1968, and 1969.
