The Liner: Retrospective & Renaissance By Philip Dawson documents not just transatlantic but also flotillas of ocean liners.
The book from Conway Maritime Press covers the ships histories, design, construction, engineers, builders, crew, passengers and the service life of the ocean liner is examined, from the early paddle steamer Great Western of 1838 to the Queen Mary 2.
Included are liners such as Normandie, Mauretania, Olympic and Titanic, Bremen, The United States and the Cunard Queens along with less famous but significant ships such as L’Atlantique, Kungsholm, Lucania and Nieuw Amsterdam.
The book is profusely illustrated with both colour and black and white photographs, artwork and plans.
The dustwrapper is in vg condition, clean, with very slight edge wear and light handling marks. The binding is tight. Inside, the content is clean and unmarked and in fine condition.
