KLUDAS, Arnold. Great Passenger Ships of the World. Volume 1 : 1858-1912. Translated by Charles Hodges. Cambridge : Patrick Stephens, (1975). Pp [1]-216. Illustrated. Index. Triple Column. Large 8vo, blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine. “The aim of the five volumes in this outstanding series is to present, for the first time in international maritime literature, a work covering all passenger ships to date of over 10,000 gross registered tons, with relevant technical and historical data, and including photographs of the vessels. This initial volume deals with the period 1858-1912, from the first passenger ship of over 10,000 GRT to be placed in service (the Great Eastern) to those unforgettable sister-ships the Olympic and Titanic – the first of more than 40,000 GRT. Details of all the 209 vessels covered in this volume are carefully and precisely given by an author who is respected throughout the world for his shipping knowledge. As Lawrence Dunn, Vice-President of the World Ship Society, says in his foreword to this volume, 'In this unbiased approach, we see the touch of the true historian'.” - from the dj.Very good in price-clipped dustjacket. 50.00
