1992 Charles Scribner's Sons hardcover, 3rd printing. John Maxtone-Graham (Normandie: France's Legendary Art Deco Ocean Liner). The history of cruise ships and their journeys across the oceans

From Publishers Weekly:

Today's ships are "less grand hotel than grand mall," contends maritime historian and shipboard lecturer Maxtone-Graham in the concluding volume of a nostalgic trilogy ( The Only Way to Cross ; Liners to the Sun ), a book that is likely to delight steamship buffs. The vessels, he notes, have changed more than their passengers. Liberally illustrated and rich in nautical lore, the book contrasts today's "giant floating theme parks," designed expressly to provide "total-immersion escapism" for fun-bent cruise guests, with the more purposeful ocean carriers of the past. Maxtone-Graham evokes the crowded, stifling steerage quarters of millions of deloused, often seasick immigrants, the ordeal that awaited immigrants upon their arrival at Ellis Island and, in later years, the annual eastbound migrations of vast numbers of culture-hungry tourists and students aboard Edwardian and Beaux-Arts superliners from the Aquitania to the Queens (and the incomparable Normandie , to which he devotes a chapter).

Descripción de la librería

The Chatham Bookseller began in 1968, and, in 1970, opened a store at its present location in Madison, New Jersey. The store contains over 10,000 books and 80 subjects, and favors good used books and good literature over popular books and bestsellers. The store carries hardcover and paperbacks. Our Internet business began in 2001. The approximately 4,000 Internet books and pamphlets are kept on the premises, but cannot be viewed as a whole. However, we can show and sell individual titles upon request. If you can call ahead, it would be appreciated. Unless you have called ahead, we cannot show Internet books on Sundays. We appreciate all of our customers and try to serve them well and fulfill their special needs.
