Whats its ISBN Number ?
Just received my copy of this work. It is well-produced, very comprehensive, and contains myriad nicely-executed color profiles (both sides) which actually look like the named vessels. It is similar in size and format to the Brescia/Bagnasco work, but I think it is a bit more comprehensive; the MAS portion certainly is. There is no color chart (which there is in the other work), the inclusion of which would have IMHO enhanced the reader's understanding of the official RM names and relative colors. The author does give the Italian names for some of the colors in ( ) however. Without doing an extensive comparison of the dated drawings with dated photos, I don't know how accurate they are overall. I did compare a couple them with their counterparts in the Brescia/Bagnasco work and there were some subtle differences here and there, but they generally matched each other. I'd buy it (oh, I did... )
