Mystic Seaport also has a wonderful collection of nautical prints and a very good bookstore, where I behaved and bought only a $14 recreated spyglass in a wooden case, but let me tell you how tempted I was by the print of Geoff Hunt's Surprise (The Far Side of the World) with a small doodle of the ship and Jack by Hunt next to his autograph. The biggest tease of the trip so far: they are bringing out a book of Geoff Hunt's artwork next month, including, I believe, all the O'Brian book covers. I must have this! And I must wait!
