It is no secret that the pre-war items from Queen Mary are more collectable than post war. In fact, that is as it should be with age and rarity so often going together. This booklet was produced to celebrate the Queen Mary’s launch on September 26, 1934, by Her Majesty Queen Mary, making it one of the oldest items you can get for the Mary. This launch brochure contains thirteen images, including some grand foldouts. All the photos are tipped in, and the whole is tied with a fancy cord. There is a great quote from 50 years before by a Cunard chairman on the occasion of the launch of Etruria. Obviously, this is an asset to any Queen Mary collection, particularly as this is the much harder to find pre-launch issue which is marked “No. 534” and is from before she was named. Some foxing on the cover and in a few spots throughout and a couple of chips to the spine otherwise very good condition.
