2 lovely books for yachties, sailors, fans of beautiful boats, or for those with dreams of the high seas but are stuck at home or in the office. 'Vintage Yachts Of The World' by Falvio Serafini and 'Sailboats - The World's Best Sailboats in 500 Great Photos' by Nic Compton, both in very good condition. Price is for both.
'Vintage Yachts Of The World' by Falvio Serafini is an impressive hardback volume with stunning photographs. Photo 3 of the contents page should provide an idea of the range of boats covered, but there's also this from the blurb:-
This book is a thoroughly researched historical survey of the vintage yachts that are usually present at the world's major regattas. It offers sailing enthusiasts a panoramic and detailed analysis of more than 300 boats, with full historical and technical data, details of their interior and external features, and splendid photography by James Taylor and other leading European photographers.
This edition also presents yachts that have become part of the history of sailing. It also offers a detailed glance on both the interior and exterior aspects of the yachts and tells of the dedicated crews united by their profound love of the sea and the unique freedom of sailing.
This high-quality, elegant publication evokes the poetic charm of a world that might otherwise be lost forever.
The book itself is in almost new condition. The dust cover looks great too but closer inspection will reveal a bit of wear along the top edge and a small 4mm tear at the bottom of the leading edge.
This lovely 438 page hardback was published by Feierabend Verlag OHG in 2003. ISBN 3-936761-51-5. [Approx 31 x 27 x 3.6cms & 3010g].
'Sailboats - The World's Best Sailboats in 500 Great Photos' by Nic Compton is pretty much what it says on the cover...500 photographs of classic and contemporary sailboats, featuring landmark models and profiles of top sailors. Photo 8 of the contents page shows the scope of this one. As you'd expect, its largely a visual feast.
This one remains in excellent condition too with minimal signs of use on the cover.
400 pages. Published by Greenwich Editions [Salamander Books] in 2005. ISBN 0-86288-627-9. [Approx 15 x 21 x 2.4cms & 750g].
