This is the 1945 Hawsepipe Yearbook for The California Maritime Academy in Vallejo California. It is a hardbound book that measures about 8 by 11 inches and has a padded cover. It has 132 pages and is very well illustrated.
There is the name of "Ralph B. Hoyt" on the front cover.
The training ship for the class of 1945 was the Golden State.
There is no table of contents, but inside you'll find sections on: Ship and Base, Administration, Graduates, Under Grads, Cruise, Activities, CMA Life, Athletics, and Advertisements, and more.
I also have the Hawsepipe yearbooks for the years 1944, 1946, and 1947 available and I do combine shipping charges.
There are slight bumps to the corners, but no tears to the spine. There is no writing inside and there are no torn pages. For being close to 70 old, I'd say it's in extremely good condition.
The postal service recently changed the rules on mailing "yearbooks" and no longer allow them to be mailed via Media Mail. Shipping will be via USPS Priority Mail Flat Rate Envelope. The book will be mailed with postal insurance. Buyer to pay $7.95 delivery charges.
SHIPPING CHARGE INFO:
I do combine shipping on multiple items purchased. However, my web host is not set up to calculate multiple item shipping costs. At checkout, you will be charged full shipping price on each item purchased and I will refund the appropriate amount of overpayment. If you are uncomfortable with that, you can send me an email with your zip code and stating which items you'll be purchasing and I'll calculate the correct combined shipping charges and send you a custom invoice.
Also, every January the postal service increases shipping charges. This year, many price increases were a bit steep with some package categories adding as much as a dollar on to an already high shipping charge. I try to absorb some of the new charges but that's getting harder with each increase.
International shipping charges also took a tremendous leap. International shipping will now depend on the country. Buyer must contact seller for international shipping charges before making a purchase. Seller reserves the right to void any international transactions where contact has not been made prior to purchasing.
All items in my listings come from either estate or garage sales. I do not know if they came from homes where smoking or pets were present. All items are sold in the same condition as when I received them.
