Here for sale is a great antique book on the History of the Port of London. Published in 1921 and has a personal hand written inscription to Gerald Meynell, the printer from Daniel O'Conner the publisher of this lovely book. It contains lots of colour plates of ships and maps, and some fabulous put out prints. This is volume one of a two volume collection. This stunning book has so much history and perfect for a collector to enjoy or display.


The spine of the book is split. Shows signs of wear and tear as it is old and has been used, but only adds to its character. Great decorative item which would look fantastic in any home or business interior.

Please look at photos closely as they form part of the item description.
