Washington, D.C. Bureau of Navigation (Under Authority of the Secretary of the Navy). Circa 1922.
Black and white photo illustrated 40-page guide book, 5 1/4 x 7 inches, published for naval personnel assigned to duty in Gibraltar. Guide features a black and white foldout map of Gibraltar at rear, opening to 9 3/4 x 19 1/2 inches. In addition to useful information pertaining to Gibraltar, the guidebook also provides focus to adjacent neighboring Spain and, less than 7 miles away by ferry in northern Africa, Morocco. Guide in excellent clean condition; it appears never to have been used while the map, until the recent acquisition, clearly had never been opened. It would be difficult to find a more pristine copy of this vintage guide (closing in on being a century old). Text on cover states it is part of the "Ditty Box Guide Book Series." Item #55614
