This is a book that boldly sets forth for our consideration, enjoyment and edification of more than 150 maritime images that take the reader on a cultural and philosophical voyage that circumnavigates the globe. It is bound together as an unfolding whole by Peter Neill's short compelling essays. From the
artifacts of the past to the abstractions of the present, the book includes some stirringly familiar masterpieces, and it also showcases lesser-known and often dazzling works that broaden our notion of the maritime genre. 290 x 287mm, pp.188, colour plates throughout, index by Artist and Title. Large Square hard cover in dust jacket. Contents, no inscriptions; dust jacket, slight rubbing top spine, few 'surface' marks - no tears. NEAR FINE.
