Small Yachts. Their design and construction exemplified by the ruling types of modern practice. With numerous plates and illustrations
New York: Forest and Stream Publishing Company, 1885. [Yacht Building] FIRST EDITION. Folio, (28cm x 37cm). With 63 plates and numerous illustrations in text, pp.v; 369. Finely bound in recent brown half morocco, tan label, gilt titles and decoration to spine, original publisher's pictorial boards. Text block rather fragile; there are two archival tape repairs to closed tears, one to blank margin of index of plates (approx 8cm long), the other just over text at margin of p.23 (approx 8cm long). The suite of plates also has some taped repairs with pl.xliv suffering some loss at margins. There are occasional shorter edge tears within. Nonetheless, the fragile paper used means this book seldom survives in fine condition; despite the listed falts this remains an excellent copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
Bookseller: Adrian Harrington Ltd, PBFA, ABA, ILAB [Royal Tunbridge Wells, KENT, United Kingdom]
