This year's 150th anniversary of the America's Cup provides a unique, never again to be repeated opportunity to purchase a copy of the most famous book on the Cup, one that is considered the official and most detailed history of the first 50 years. Published originally in 1902 in a limited and numbered edition of only 3,000 copies, the book is almost impossible to find and even used copies easily cost $1,500 or more. An exquisite, limited and numbered reprint of only 1,500 copies was published by Sheridan House in 1986. It went quickly out of print. Now quite unexpectedly a couple of dozen books have been found and are being offered for sale. This is a facsimile edition, in large format (7 [1/2] 11 [1/2]), ornately brassed on high quality buckram in the Victorian tradition. The cover is gold and white linen. Full gold edging. There are 90 illustrations, 17 of which are full-page watercolors of famous America's Cup challengers in full sail. There is also a fascinating assortment of sketches, yacht plans and race charts. A very special collector's item.
