I am slowly collecting nautical books. I love the idea of adding books over time and mixing old with new. Right now I have all of my books grouped together (nautical and not nautical) but once I am in a house (or a bigger apartment) my nautical books will be on display on their own.
My best find so far is By the Sea. I found it at a local flea market a few years ago. It is from 1890!
|It was a gift to someone for Christmas, 1890!|
|It has a collection of nautical poems|
|and black and white nautical photographs|
I got The First Book of Boats on One Kings Lane (they have book sales pretty frequently). I ordered Seashores on Amazon. These two are from the 1950s.
My most recent purchase was Rooms to Inspire by the Sea. My mom found Martha's Vineyard in Color at the book store in Sun Valley, Idaho, Iconoclast Books. Both of these were published more recently (Rooms to Inspire in 2012, Martha's Vineyard in the 1980s).
I just ordered Breverton's Nautical Curiosities: A Book of the Sea because the illustrations look fun!
What I want to add to my collection:
|Rare and expensive so it may take awhile to find this!|
Do you have any nautical books in your collection?
