Item #20529 The Captain's Table, A Transatlantic Log [NAUTICAL FICTION]. Sisley HUDDLESTON.

The Captain's Table, A Transatlantic Log [NAUTICAL FICTION]. Philadelphia: J. B. Lippincott Co., 1932.

First Edition. "The great liner Manchia swung out from the dock into the river and headed downstream for Cherbourg, carrying its cosmopolitan crowd of movie actress, big business man, playwright, celebrated scientist, bishop, buyers, gamblers, professional ladies and the English author, Peter Vernon, returning from a lecture tour in America. As the days pass, the diverse stories of these people are told to Vernon, intimate and moving: the socialist editor eloping with his secretary; the lonely oil magnate; the private life of the movie queen and her attendant Prince; the German girl who had become buyer for a big New York store; and the dozens of sentimental flirtations which blossom quickly in this salt air of unreality". Very Good, some fading to cloth at edges, in Very Good dustjacket with some shallow edge chips and modest wear.

Price: $65.00
