Overall for its age this is a Very Clean, Tight and Bright Near 'Very Good' copy. " A history of the sailing ship would be far from complete without some account of the trade to the West Coast of South America. "The Nitrate Clippers" looks at the feats of the great German "P" boats of F. Laeisz and their French rivals, the checker-sided nitrate barques of Ant. Dom Bordes from the late 1800s to about 1932. The book discusses the management of the two companies, their peacetime and World War I operations, and some of the ships and cargoes involved." ; Small 4to 9" - 11" tall .
