Anybody else have a copy of this book? It contains interior photos and renderings of ships dating back to 1861.

Gibbons provides insightful and historic commentary about the images. The images are mainly of public rooms on ships but there are quite a few of staterooms and cabins from First Class on down to steerage.

One chapter, entitled 'Superliners Without Peer', is devoted entirely to the Queen Mary, Normandie and Queen Elizabeth.

I purchased it in 1997 as a special order and paid $50.00. It's well worth the price as it provides a central source for interior images of liners up through the QE2 and SS Norway.

The book ends on page 238. But, included in the package were Pictorial Supplement 1 (Coastal Liners Combination Liners and Cargo Liners 24 pages) and Pictorial Supplement #2 (Short Seas, Blue Collar Liners and Great Lakes 24 pages) which were printed as separate booklets and bring the total up to 286 pages.
