The books in this section are usually hardcover and in decent condition, though we'll sometimes offer hard-to-find books in lesser condition at a reduced price. Though we often put images of the book with their original dust jackets, the copies here won't always (or even often) have them. If that is important to you, please call ahead or say so in the order comments! 

Here is the colorful, exciting life of the sea—the men, the ships they sail, the work they do, the cargoes they carry to the far corners of the world—all vividly presented.

Freighters, tankers, ferries, tugs, and the many unusual ships that do highly specialized jobs are shown in action. The work, the sailor's language, the kind of life a seaman lives, the use of inventions like radar all contribute to this fascinating picture of SHIPS AT WORK. The proudest of ocean liners are pictures and described as well as the humblest dugouts and sailing vessels of ancient times.

The illustrator, famous for his marine painting, has combined beauty with clear, sharp detail. His many full-color pictures in this book give added interest to your seafaring knowledge.

You will find this book an exciting companion to TRAINS AT WORK, TRUCKS AT WORK, MACHINES AT WORK.
