Their Last Letters 1930-1938

SKU 419
The last letters of Nathanael Greene Herreshoff and W.P. Stephens are a biographer’s godsend as primary sources. From their own accounts we perceive them evolving during the peaking of the industrial revolution as self-made leaders – Stephens achieving recognition as the ‘dean’ of chroniclers of yachting history and Herreshoff as the ‘dean’ of naval architects. John Streeter’s annotations constitute an historian’s treasure-trove in amplification and explanation of the persons, yachts and yachting events being discussed in Their Last Letters. The lively dialectic between a naval architect and a yachting historian, who remain virtually without peers in their respective fields, combined with Streeter’s Notes make Their Last Letters unique in the annals of yachting.
