Famous Clyde Yachts

by Meikle & Shields.

Oatts & Runciman, Glasgow & London, 1888.

large folio book (52x38cm).  pp78 + 31 plates.

some foxing to title-page, occasional light marginal foxing and marking elsewhere, with the outer margin of one plate slightly worse affected, but generally a superb copy. The original blue cloth binding and gilt lettering and decoration are still good and bright, with just very slight edge wear to the binding.  The colour of the chromolithograph plates is sparkling.  (heavy book that may require extra shipping charges for overseas orders)

one of the most sought-after books in the field of yachting literature, this superb volume contains a series of thirty-one chromolithograph plates reproduced from paintings by Henry Shields, depicting a range of Clyde yachts, from the 100-ft+ giants to the 15′, 17′ and 19′ class of small racing yachts.  Each plate is accompanied by the text of James Meikle, one of the leading yachting correspondents of the day, describing the yacht and recording her racing career, etc.
