Ships of the U.S. Merchant Marine by S. Kip Farrington, Jr., Illustrations by Jack Coggins with an introduction by Admiral Chester W. Nimitz, Copyright 1947, first edition, signed by author.
This is a hard cover book, dust jacket with original price of $3.75 protected by a mylar cover. Book and jacket are in great condition. The illustrations are gorgeous in deep rich colors as first produced, you will be amazed. The inscription and signature is difficult for me to decipher (see photo). The end papers at the back of the book illustrate an inboard profile of a C-2 Cargo ship. This nautical book is vintage and not easy to find in this condition.
Note: The book has an introduction by Admiral Chester W. Nimitz, U.S.N.
