鈥淚鈥檝e paged through stacks of books on the history of watches. . . . But I hadn鈥檛 come across a book that actually moved me until I picked up <i>A Man and His Watch</i>. The volume is filled with heartfelt stories.鈥?lt;br /><i><b>鈥擳: The New York Times Style Magazine</b></i><br /><br /> Paul Newman wore his Rolex Daytona every single day for 35 years until his death in 2008. The iconic timepiece, probably the single most sought-after watch in the world, is now in the possession of his daughter Clea, who wears it every day in his memory. Franklin Roosevelt wore an elegant gold Tiffany watch, gifted to him by a friend on his birthday, to the famous Yalta Conference where he shook the hands of Joseph Stalin and Winston Churchill. JFK鈥檚 Omega worn to his presidential inauguration, Ralph Lauren鈥檚 watch purchased from Andy Warhol鈥檚 personal collection, Sir Edmund Hillary鈥檚 Rolex worn during the first-ever summit of Mt. Everest . . . these and many more compose the stories of the world鈥檚 most coveted watches captured in <i>A Man and His Watch</i>. Matthew Hranek, a watch collector and NYC men鈥檚 style fixture, has traveled the world conducting firsthand interviews and diving into exclusive collections to gather the never-before-told stories of 76 watches, completed with stunning original photography of every single piece. Through these intimate accounts and Hranek鈥檚 storytelling, the watches become more than just timepieces and status symbols; they represent historical moments, pioneering achievements, heirlooms, family mementos, gifts of affection, and lifelong friendships.

<p>Over 150 years ago, the skills needed to operate a merchant sailing vessel were many and varied. While not nearly as much in demand today as they were in the days of the Yankee clippers, these skills nevertheless remain important and necessary to today's yachtsmen and owners of smaller pleasure boats.<br />In this excellent handbook on basic shipboard skills, marine expert Hervey Garrett Smith offers boating and yachting enthusiasts a complete course in rigging, working, and maintaining a ship. More than 100 illustrations help the reader grasp the fundamentals and fine points of handling a ship while the author describes in detail a sailor's tools, basic knots, and useful hitches as well as the arts of splicing, handsewing, and canvas work.<br />Other topics equally important to safe, economical, and efficient boat maintenance and management include belaying, coiling, and stowing; towing procedures; how to make a chafing gear; and much more. Easy-to-follow instructions for fashioning decorative knots, ornamental coverings, and nettings, and even how to make a proper bucket round out this engaging and informative guide.<br />Packed with useful "hands-on" information conveyed in a chatty, humorous style, <i>The Arts of the Sailor </i>is the perfect book to keep aboard ship for study and for ready reference when the need arises. It also makes delightful reading for armchair sailors and the legions of landlubbers with an interest in the sea.</p><p></p>

<b>Relive the glory years of American railroading</b><br /><br /> Return to an era when passenger trains represented the height of luxury and riding the rails was the only way to travel. <i>Classic Railroad Advertising</i> covers nearly a century of memories - of powerful steam locomotives and elegant streamliners, of the brute force of diesel power and the patriotic effort to keep America on the move during a tumultuous world war.<br /><br /> During their heyday, railroads employed the top ad agencies and some of the era's best-known illustrators to create compelling magazine advertising. The ads are a wonderful time capsule into a different era, a time when travel meant less about speed and economy and more about comfort and style. Through these ads you'll watch technology advance as railroads embrace streamlined designs and diesels locomotives; ride along as America fights a war, with railroads at front and center of the effort; witness a long, slow decline as passenger trains nearly succumb to competition from automobiles and airplanes, only to re-emerge with a new revitalized role in the guise of Amtrak.<br /><br /> Join us for a great railroad journey in print - one that you won't soon forget.<br /><br />聽聽聽鈥⒙? <b>Enjoy nearly 200 color advertisements</b> and authoritative commentary<br />聽聽聽鈥⒙? <b>Remember America's greatest railroads: </b>Pennsylvania, Santa Fe, New York Central, Southern Pacific, and many more<br />聽聽聽鈥⒙? <b>Experience the finest passenger trains</b>, including the Super Chief, 20th Century Limited, California Zephyr, Broadway Limited and others
