1 U.S.S. Harold W. Tucker DD-875, 1963-1966 Naval Tour Log Book
n.p. no publication info 1966 hardcover 

Very good plus, light sunning on spine cloth & near top edges, overall a nice, clean, vintage copy. The Tucker served in Vietnam and was the first ship to provide naval gunfire support for South Vietnam and also visited other parts of Southeast Asia. Despite the seriousness of the missions, a good sense of humor shows up throughout the pages, which are mostly photographs.

Rebound in leather covers with five raised spine bands. Owner info dated 1917, along with a brief but interesting reason behind the rebind in 1918 (related to the sinking of the U.S.S. America). Good to very good, some rubbing on leather but not bad, a few widely scattered pencil marks, page 531 (end of Table 1?) is missing and has been replaced by a bound-in sheet of notes.
