America and the Sea
A Maritime History
by Benjamin Labaree, William Fowler Jr, et Al

Illustrated W/Vintage PHOTOS

Volume 15, Mystic Seaport Press, c1998, 686 pages, HUGE BOOK!, 1st EDITION . EXCELLENT Condition HUGE Hardcover with an EXCELLENT Condition Dust Jacket protected with a Mylar Cover. This book is ex-library with usual markings, fep removed & only slightest wear. Pages & Binding are NICE & TIGHT!

The most COMPREHENSIVE book of Maritime History of the United States available today! The Rich, Complex Story of America and the sea is illustrated here With 55 COLOR IMAGES, Many Of Them PAINTINGS From Museums around the world; with 290 ARCHIVAL PHOTOGRAPHS and drawings in black and white; and with 10 FULL COLOR MAPS.

This hefty work, the collaborative effort of six leading maritime historians, covers seafaring Americans from colonial times to the late 1990s in a combination of narrative text, vignettes, quotations from primary sources, and extensive and well-chosen illustrations.

Historically & graphically up to date, it notes the roles of women and minorities, the role of American maritime activity in developing American industry and vice versa, and much more, including the traditional repertoire of the romantic teller of sea stories.

The authors' grasp of their subject and the book's relative paucity of academic jargon help convey the excitement of seafaring and its history, if not always its romance. Whether intended as such, the book amounts to the best textbook on American maritime history within memory. It has something of value for every kind of reader, from those who own half the books in its excellent bibliography to those whose interest in ships and the sea dates from their first viewing of a certain recent motion-picture maritime disaster.
