Condition A: minor overpainting in margins.
Sailing from Venice, the black hull of this powerful ship is churning up a wake in the blue waters as it speeds its way towards distant, exotic destinations: The Parthenon in Athens and The Great Church Hagia Sophia in Istanbul. Begun in 1937, The Adriatica Line specialized in services from Italy to countries in the Mediterranian and Orient.
