Item NART10 - “Yachtsman’s Annual Guide” 1901.
This scarce survivor of Yachting’s golden
age is a gold mine of period information about sea faring in the late 1800s. It
is packed with full page advertisements from the leading retailers of yachting
equipment, sail makers, boat yards, etc along the East Coast. But it also has
abundant photographs of the famous yachts, captains, owners and designers of the
day. Its information includes fold-out charts of principal harbors like
Newburyport, Salem, Boston, Newport, New York, etc, with sailing instructions
for these, and most smaller harbors along the coast. It contains a great
dictionary of nautical terms, as well as the pennants and burgees of all of the
yacht clubs along the northeast coast. In very good condition, with just some
soiling of the edges of the top cover. Good+
