     First edition, limited edition (#95 of 325 copies, signed by etchers and author). Weber, pp. 32-33: "This book, which Wall felt 'should be a worthy addition to the small field of etched bookery,' was dedicated 'to those who guided us on our first voyage of discovery, our Mothers.' The pictures and decorations were etched by J. Duncan Gleason (1881-1959), the text was compiled and written by Dorothy Gleason, and the text was etched by Bernhardt Wall." J. Duncan Gleason was one of Wall's students. The collaboration of the Gleasons and Wall resulted in this handsome, well-executed tribute to the magnificent sailing ships of yesteryear. 70000116
