This deluxe, illustrated guide to Boston Harbor does for that body of water what King's Dictionary does for the city of Boston. In the Index to the Text you will find entries here for everything from Burning Ships to Clams, from Nut Island to Ocean Spray to Pilot-boats, and from Pirates to Seashore Home for Children. Historical events, persons, and places are also included. Indeed, very little imaginable about Boston Harbor is not included. This is still a very readable and entertaining guide for visitors to Boston Harbor today!
"[This is a] compendium volume utilizing views from all three of the editions of the book ... This is by far the most lavish of all the White Mountains books. All in the folio size are extremely scarce, none more so than this compendium volume."--Hanson Collection catalog, p. 62.
