Constitution, By-laws, Sailing Regulations, Etc., of the Providence Yacht Club.1878 Stock Code: 62725
NotesFirst edition. The "list of vessels belonging to the Providence Yacht Club" shows N.G. Herreshoff owning both a sloop and a catamaran, one of only two in the club. Extremely rare survival, OCLC shows Brown holding a copy of the 1876 issue, and no others.
Duodecimo (152 x 108 mm). Sewn as issued in the original violet, printed glazed card wraps.
Club badge verso of title page.
A little rubbed and oiled, a couple of chips from the lower panel of the wraps, contemporary inked docketing as a duplicate to the upper panel, light toning, but a very good copy.
