Emmons, Conant H.
Bottled Ships and Other Objects. Their History and usage including some unusual models.

Published by the author: 1969. Limited to 500 copies.

A curious and interesting production, jam-packed with information and anecdotes about ships (and other objects) in bottles. The author includes the secrets of getting ships and other models into bottles, tours American museums where ships in bottles may be seen, examines bottled ships in fact and fiction, and addresses their use as decoration. Quite a lot of information is packed into a comparatively small book. Quite uncommon.

Softcover. 5.75"x7.25", 93 pages, line illustrations. Near fine.
