0283982241 125 pages profusely illustrated in black and white. For over a quarter of a century the North Atlantic passage was the ultimate in sophisticated travel. The two great Cunard liners, the Queen Mary and the Queen Elizabeth, the largest passenger ships the world has ever, or will ever see, represented the apogee of that glittering era. Traces with words, photographs and contemporary drawings the stories of these great ships and their competitors, evoking the atmosphere of the grand saloon and chronicling the social history of the life-style that is now but a nostalgic memory. "It is a splendidly professional bit of writing stuffed with well-presented facts and entirely free from verbosity... The story is largely told in the fine collection of illustrations." - Lloyds List. Gift inscription upon second front flyleaf. Average wear overall.
