Toy boats aren’t just for kids, as evidenced by this spectacular volume of photographs detailing highlights from the 500-plus collection on permanent exhibit at the Forbes Galleries in New York City. Sport, military, commercial, and luxury craft are represented in a stunning pageant of nautical styles. The Forbes Galleries in New York City include exhibits of the fabled Fabergé Easter eggs and jewelry, toy boats, miniature soldiers, presidential manuscripts and fine art. An introduction by Robert L. Forbes, who helped assemble the Forbes toy boat collection with his father, Malcolm S. Forbes, explains how the collection originated, grew and gained international prestige.
