About this Item

Tres bien! This French ship booklet is a thing of beauty, not often seen. The booklet is big at 8" tall and 12" wide and shows off its beauty in 18 counted pages. There are black and white photographs galore, but the real eye catchers are the paintings, especially the double spread of the smoking room rendered by Richard Lindner. There's also a spread showing the exterior of the rebuilt ship. The S.S. Ile de France launched originally in 1927, but was turned into a ship for troops in 1941. It wasn't until 1949 that she was launched again, rebuilt and decorated by the finest designers. The booklet shows the Grand Salon, first class suites and cabins, the Cafe de Paris, the first class and cabin class dining room and children's dining room, the smoking room, the reading room, the gym, and more. Booklet is clean and tightly bound. There is a light vertical crease but I have ironed it flat and put it in the book press.The only other fault is a rectangular browned area at back cover ( see photo) and at last two pages from something lying against them. Overall this is a very nice collectible. Size: Oblong. Bookseller Inventory # 27850

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!
