About this Item

A massive volume measuring 12-1/2" tall by 16" high in very nice, clean condition. The book itself is without fault -- no names or writing and no bumps to boards. The jacket has not been price-clipped and shows no egregious faults, but does have a small dark spot to plain blue back and a very small wear spot to upper back corner. It will arrive, however in brand new protective mylar. If you love the art of Stobart, or appreciate nautical art in general, this book is feast for the eyes. There are over 60 paintings in full color, as well as additional drawings by Stobart, all appearing for the first time in book form and accompanied by Stobart's story in his own words. The paintings are grouped geographically to include: The Port of Boston and Down East; The Great Whaling Centres (Nantucket, New Bedford and Martha's Vineyard); The Port of New York; Lost Ports of the East Coast (Hartford, Darien, Georgetown and Alexandria); The Great Hinterland Ports (Pittsburgh, Cincinnati and Chicago); The Rival Ports (Charleston and Savannah); Ports of the Mississippi, the Missouri, and the Gulf; and West Coast Ports. A lovely book and very giftable. 209 pages. Size: Oversized. Bookseller Inventory # 20627

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!
