    I walked to Armchair Sailor in Seattle on my lunch hour and
    looked at this book. It is a beautiful book with lots of nice
    color pictures on glossy paper. It looks like a high-class
    coffee-table book with some good, substantive content thrown in,
    although I didn't have time to evaluate the content carefully.
    It sells for $75.00.
