Crisp, beautiful book. Only detraction is an unobtrusive presentation sticker to half title page and small original price at corner of front free endpaper. NOT an ex-library copy. Very nice with no writing, tears, or chips. Dustjacket is protected by brand new mylar cover. Beautiful panoramic photographic endpapers.If you love both Erie, Pennsylvania and the Great Lake for which it was named this is your book. What a beauty -- oversized, printed on high quality glossy paper and lavishly illustrated with vintage black and white photos throughout. Oblong in size, measuring 11-1/4" across. The author grew up listening to the stories his grandmother told of her sea faring husband and quickly fell in love with the lake and the sailors who traversed it. Here he chronicles the growth of the early 19th century military fleets and tells the regional story of shipping, ship building, and commercial fishing. He also tells the stories of the people who spent their lives in its service. 318 pages.
