Inhaltsangabe: This book is a tribute to the last days of the great merchant sailboats and their crews from a unique photographic talent. The photographic work of Alan Villiers is arguably the most important photo-historical record of early 20th-century maritime history. In capturing on film life aboard the last of the great merchant sail ships, he has provided us with a singular record of the end of an era. These powerful images, published for the first time in this volume, date from the late 1920s through the 1930s and were taken aboard the three ships Villiers worked on during this period: the "Herzogin Cecilie," the "Grace Harwar," and the "Panama,"
