  • Description or summary of the book: The rebirth of the classics, here are 18 of Nautical Quaterly's best sail-related articles spanning all 12 years of the publication and preserving NQ's signature design and trim. Preceding the selection is a short history of NQ by nautical author Anthony Dalton, as well as a foreword by Jim Gilbert, publisher of Showboat magazine. This makes for a wonderful gift book with a strong degree of instant recognition and credibility, and a strong appeal, even among those unfamiliar with the late, great Nautical Quarterly.Editor Reese Palley is the author of four books about sailing; most recently Call of the Ancient Mariner (IM, 2003). Palley made an 18-month circumnavigation of the globe while in his sixties. His writing regularly appears in Cruising World and other magazines. Palley splits his time between Philadelphia and Key West.Co-editor Anthony Dalton is a photojournalist and adventurer whose most recent book is Wayward Sailor: In Search of the Real Tristan Jones (IM, 2003). He lives in Delta, British Columbia.- NQ's circulation peaked at 20,000 at $15 per issue and $60 per year; Palley is working to locate a subscriber list)- Don McGraw Jr., of McGraw-Hill publishing fame underwrote NQ was as a labor of love- The best nautical writers, photographers, and illustrators appeared in NQ, including deceased literary and art figures such as Jack London, William Faulkner, and Winslow Homer. - NQ is listed as a 'dead' publication by the federal copyright office; Palley has located much of the original film and has been able to contact several contributors, all of whom are willing to allow their work to be reproduced gratis
