The present reference publication was compiled by John H. Isherwood and has been dedicated to the vessels which used to belong to the famous Cunard Fleet. It was published some twenty five years back with the original intention of its author to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Cunard, it was a tribute to the memory of the author. This excellent reference book starts with the brief historical overview of Cunard followed by the detailed drawings of virtually all ships that used to form part of the fleet of 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 this publication, histories of the ships and their pictures, are mainly based on the info obtained from the Central Record of the World Ship Society. This is a very rare and very important book for everyone interested in the naval history. The amount of the technical information provided in the book makes in so interesting and valuable for all people interested in the naval history and ship modelers, in particular. Note that the publication contains some of the information that would otherwise be quite difficult to find somewhere else.
