G.P. Putnam's Sons, 1904. Item #989
CLARK, Arthur H. THE HISTORY OF YACHTING 1600-1815. With 96 Illustrations. NY: G.P. Putnam's Sons, . Small quarto, cloth & boards stamped in gilt. First Edition. Signed presentation from Clark on the front endpaper: "To Edmond Picton. With kind regards, from Arthur H. Clark. New York, December 6th 1904." A rather scarce book on the early history of yachting and quite uncommon to locate a signed copy. This thick book was rather poorly bound and most copies have some signatures loose, a bit pulled, or skewed. Good (some plates or signtures a bit askew but contents still clean & tight; some edgewear & bit of soil covers). $350.00.
