    The Raft Book. Lore of the Sea and Sky. Written by noted aviator Harold Gatty, this vintage book comes in its original slipcase with one big "coffee table-sized" map printed on both sides, one big "coffee table-sized" chart printed on both sides with Northern and Southern Latitudes and one "Greenwich Date and Hour Scales" ruler-like paper piece. Copyright 1943. No printing date stated but there is a 1943 on the title page. George Grady Press, publishers. SOFTCOVER (paperback), approx. 5-1/2" x 7-1/2", 152 pages. This is NOT a former library copy.

    Please review the photos carefully. Cover has bumped, worn corners and a little edge wear. Page corners are bumped. There is a little separation between a couple of the pages but nothing is loose because of it. There is a name written on the title page and a light erasure mark on the inside front cover. Slipcase has edge and corner wear plus edge wear on the pasted-on illustration. Slipcase surfaces have some scuffing/scratching and soil. Label on the slipcase spine is discolored.
