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.
PS Even a good reprint.
abebooks.com is usually a great place to find used books easily, but they only have a poor copy of this one right now:

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.
