Various Ships - A can of coffee & "American Viking: The Saga of Hans Isbrandtsen"

Product Description
Isbrandtsen Lines - An old can of coffee and a book ... what is that Nautiques guy thinking?

Let me explain. First, the book:

"American Viking: The Saga of Hans Isbrandtsen" by James Dugan, printed in 1963, hardbound w/ dust jacket, 306 pages, tells the story of the famously mercurial ship owner who gave the finger to government regulators and fellow ship owners to build a scrappy and successful American line. So much so that he bought American Export in the early 1960s and rebranded it American Export Isbrandtsen Lines. The story of his life from his humble beginnings in a Danish fishing village to his peak as a large ship operator makes for an exciting tale.

Coffee played a part in the story, beginning with early success in hauling coffee beans from South America to New York. Isbrandtsen began roasting his own coffee, much to the delight of his over-worked employees, both in the home office and at sea. He began giving cans away at Christmas time and selling them onboard.

So here is an unopened, one-pound can of Isbrandtsen "Owner's Preferred Blend" regular coffee. As explained on the can, "This coffee is packed in one pound vacuum tins for service aboard our freighters, passenger and mail steamers on overseas trade routes and more especially on steamers in the around-the-world steamship service maintained by our company ... It may be obtains in principal world ports along the route and otherwise aboard upon application to chief stewards of the line."

The key to open the can (remember those?) is still attached to the bottom.

Very good condition.
