Old canoe book


Canoe and Boat Building A Complete Manual for Amateurs, W P Stephens, 1885. Can anyone help me find a good copy of this book. There is one online, but I would like one for my shelf.
Thank you.
Gary

PS Even a good reprint.

Thank you, who ever you are. My search also only came up with that one.

I found a source for a reprint.

If you are looking for a rare nautical book, this is a good place to start for reprints.
