Hunt & Co.
Hunt's Yachting Magazine. 18 Volumes, 1853 - 1874.
1861. <br /><br />This is the premiere early source of information about English and American yachting - including news of the America's Cup (with a color lithograph of the "America" vs. the "Alarm" in vol. 10, 1861). There is news of club activities, technical information about, and illustrations of, yachts, plans of yachts, information and illustrations on design and construction, laws of management, racing results and rules, yacht signals, hardware and fittings, sails, book reviews, and virtually every other aspect of yachting in the mid-19th century. The first three volumes are from the library of the influential yachting writer W.P. Stephens, with his bookplate and signature. The bindings are in varying states of disrepair. Volume 1 lacks 5 plates, and Volume 20 lacks the July and November issues. Otherwise the books are complete and in good order. This lot consists of the following volumes - 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10, 13, 14, 15, 16, 18, 19, 20, 23, 26, and 28. A motley-looking lot, but pure gold inside. Postage at cost on this lot
Bookseller: Ten Pound Island Book Co. [United States]
