The Forbes Collection: Toy Boats - A Century Of Treasures From Sailboats To Submarines

Toy boats aren’t just for kids, as evidenced by this spectacular volume of photographs detailing highlights from the 500-plus collection on permanent exhibit at the Forbes Galleries in New York City. Sport, military, commercial, and luxury craft are represented in a stunning pageant of nautical styles. The Forbes Galleries in New York City include exhibits of the fabled Fabergé Easter eggs and jewelry, toy boats, miniature soldiers, presidential manuscripts and fine art. An introduction by Robert L. Forbes, who helped assemble the Forbes toy boat collection with his father, Malcolm S. Forbes, explains how the collection originated, grew and gained international prestige.

I'm 63 years old an I remember the toys of the fifties, which many were from the forties. I have often said they do not make them like that any more. But after seeing this book on Forbes Toy Boats, I would again like to say, that they "Really" don't make them like that any more. This book is filled with toy boats that look like they were made for a collecter back in the 1900s, not for a children. But apparently they were. This is a great book an it is worth taking the time out to look at an then, well I'm happy I bought it.

Yes I love it. I can see why Malcom Forbes and his adult son enjoyed this hobby. I wish I could afford to own some of these boats.
