From the cover: “This book deals with an art which has, for the past one hundred years or more, been practically limited in its design to ships. There are few who have not, at one time or another, heard of the ‘ship in the bottle’ and wondered how these delightful gems of craftsmanship were created. The author, however, has progressed a step further and has evolved a new method by which practically any subject can be ‘bottled’.”
