About this Item

pp. 110, Malcolm Forbes, Foreword. Signed on Title Page "Robert Forbes". Color mostly but some b/w pictures. Every page has from 1 to 4 pictures of these wonderful boats. Incl. is a comic by Chas Addams from the New Yorker, a couple of Faberge picture frames photographed by H. Peter Curran and photographs of 3 paintings are by Otto Nelson- one is a family painting by John Koch of the young Malcolm Forbes family by the family pool, boats in water. This book has not been treated well. The back cover page and the next page have food stains, the front cover page is a little wrinkled and The spine and corners are mended with a shiny aluminum tape. It actually does not look bad, but it has obviously been enjoyed and looked at many times. The main pages are not wrinkled. Pictures sent on request. Size: 9 1/4" Tall. Bookseller Inventory # 001786
