LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:
Crescent Books, New York, 1972. Hardcover, 10" x 10½", with dust jacket. Original bookseller's label to inside cover. Jacket has scuffs & repaired tear (hence our lower price). Packed book weighs 2kgs (4½lbs), expect higher postage - we'll quote first. VERY GOOD book in GOOD price-clipped dust jacket. Landscape format, with illustrated board covers, illustrated endpapers and title-page, 225 illustrations and detailed drawings (inc 50 in 4-6 colors, 175 in black, brown or grey), list of sources (inc periodicals), appendices (gross tonnage, various national merchant navies, 1890-1964), and index. In tracing the development of increased efficiency in the use of energy by ships, this beautiful volume (the first of its kind) is remarkably detailed and yet sweeping in the largeness of its historic scope. It uses 98 ships9from 1783 to 1964) to demonstrate the key steps which led to a revolution in marine transportation, the engine-powered vessel.
