From the rear cover copy:

"From the Furst Bismarck, an early moderate-sized passenger ship that worked the trade between Hamburg and New York, to Hapag-Lloyd's Europe, typifying the 'fine-hotel' tone of pleasure ships today, here are rare views of all the great ladies: Amerika; France ('the chateau of the North Atlantic'); Imperator; Ile de France (epitome of bold design and social chic); Queen of Bermuda; the two Cunard Queens, Mary and Elizabeth (most successful superliners of all time); Liberte, United States, Leonardo da Vinci and dozens of others--including the ill-fated Titanic, Normandie, and Andrea Dorea.

"...stunning salons, suites, music rooms, ballrooms and barrooms, libraries, dining rooms, theaters and more, decorated in styles ranging from Louis XIV and Victorian to Art Deco and Modern. View the lush, tropical setting of the winter garden on the Resolute, the spectacular indoor pool on the boat deck of the Reliance and the Hollywood-picture-palace-style ballroom on the Conte Grande of 1927. Also...such lesser known vessels as Orion, first Art Deco Pacific liner; the Dutch liner Johan van Oldenbarnevelt; and Infante Dom Henrique, of Portugal's Colonial Navigation Company, the last of the colonial liners."    [Book ID # 2021]
