1 Altobello, Peter David Lakers Ghost Ships of the Great Lakes
Canada Eden Press 1988 1550450026 / 9781550450026 First Edition Hardcover Very Good Good 
1550450026 128 pages. "Bears witness to a bygone era when the ships of the Great Lakes were built according to a single premise, the need to transport steel, iron ore, grain and cargo from port to port. Yet the exteriors of these extraordinary ships belie the interiors, which were constructed with a less utilitarian purpose in mind. Fine woodwork was applied to crew cabins; dining rooms and staterooms were finished with white oak, mahogany, walnut and brass. This elegant beauty suggested a state of mind dedicated to exquisite craftsmanship, which, like the ships themselves, is gone forever... Here are 64 of the author's stunning illustrations, capturing the mood and atmosphere he felt lingering in each ship. The S.S. Birchglen and other ships are preserved in the rich, full textures of these sketches." - from dust jacket. Book clean, tight and unmarked with light wear. Average wear to price-clipped dust jacket. A sound copy.
