Vessels of the United States Coast Guard 1790-1933
Hard Cover -Published and reprinted by the United States Coast Guard and the U.S. Treasury Department as bicentennial publication in 1989. Over-sized book with a whopping 675 pages. The embossed and printed spine was embossed incorrectly by the government and instead of correctly using the word “movements” they mistakenly used the word “moments” and the hard cover was bound upside down, making a for a “rare” government error. The book appears to have been typed from an old fashioned typewriter, in the days before computers were used in printing government books. This is the perfect book for anyone wanting to research any and all Coast Guard vessels, however there are no photos. The book is in good condition with the exception of one small tear in the corner cover binding of the book.
