Cruising Club News. [Two large bound volumes covering 1962-1985]

n.p. n.d. [has issues from 1962 to 1987]. Hardcover. photos, 448, 722p. Sturdy black buckram. 38cm. First issue from 1962 is a photocopy; all other issues appear to be original. Some issues on browned newsprint; most issued on better paper. Last several pages detached (or not bound in) in Vol. II. No Jackets (as published). A large format periodical devoted to news of the exploits of members of this club of amateur sailors who are devoted to "cruising" on "small" boats. Appears to have been issued somewhat irregularly but generally twice a year. Edited from 1962 to May 1974 by Alfred B. Stanford and thereafter for this period by Carl Vilas. According to a printed statement in Vol. II, Carl Vilas caused 37 sets of this item to be prepared. "1975-1985" printed on backstrip of Vol. II but the last issue is actually dated January 1987 and is followed by an (11)-page necrology of former members. The last few issues and the necrology may have been added by Vilas after these volumes were prepared. Good. Item #78818
