Herreshoff Manufacturing Co
Herreshoff Sailing Tutor
Bristol, 1935. Contained in the original box (approx. 7¾" x 6¾" x 1¾") are 2 hulls made of Burma teak with masts, 2 mainsails, 2 jibs, 2 spinnakers (all "cut from metal and finished in white enamel"), 2 buoys, a wind direction pointer and a tide direction pointer - all parts present and accounted for; box with a pictorial label and original bifoliate directions repeating the box label on the front. "The Herreshoff Sailing Tutor is a great aid to the novice sailor in mastering the elements of yacht sailing and navigation - and in demonstrating and plotting racing tactics . Race committees are using the Herreshoff Sailing Tutor to rehearse and visualize alleged rule violations, in deciding subsequent protests, and find that it makes an unpleasant duty easier and considerably more accurate . These miniature yachts are made with that same painstaking care and skilled workmanship that established the Herreshoff yard at Bristol as the world's most distinctive center of yacht designing and construction."
Bookseller: Rulon-Miller Books (ABAA / ILAB) [St. Paul, MN, U.S.A.]
