The book by John H. Isherwood is dedicated to the vessels of Cunard Fleet. It was published some twenty five years ago to commemorate the 150th anniversary of Cunard, it was a tribute to the memory of the author. The book starts with the brief history of Cunard followed by the drawings of virtually all ships that used to belong to The Cunard Steam-Ship Company - it is a perfect pictorial record of the development of passenger shipping industry during past two centuries. The data contained in the publication, histories of the ships and their pictures, are based on the info obtained from the Central Record of the World Ship Society. This is quite rare and very important book for everyone interested in the naval history.
