This year's 150th anniversary of the America's Cup provides a unique, never again to be repeated opportunity to purchase a copy of the most famous book on the Cup, one that is considered the official and most detailed history of the first 50 years. Published originally in 1902 in a limited and numbered edition of only 3,000 copies, the book is almost impossible to find and even used copies easily cost $1,500 or more. An exquisite, limited and numbered reprint of only 1,500 copies was published by Sheridan House in 1986. It went quickly out of print. Now quite unexpectedly a couple of dozen books have been found and are being offered for sale. This is a facsimile edition, in large format (7 [1/2] 11 [1/2]), ornately brassed on high quality buckram in the Victorian tradition. The cover is gold and white linen. Full gold edging. There are 90 illustrations, 17 of which are full-page watercolors of famous America's Cup challengers in full sail. There is also a fascinating assortment of sketches, yacht plans and race charts. A very special collector's item.

Following experiences made during the previous edition of the America's Cup, an Arbitration Panel was set up in order to resolve the disputes arising with respect to the 3 1 st (2000-2003) America's Cup. It was composed of five arbitrators, all high standing lawyers with vast experience in arbitration and sport. The Arbitration Panel issued 22 decisions on many subjects, ranging from deciding whether or not Societe Nautique de Geneve (Alinghi) could take part to the America's Cup, to whether or not the Seattle Yacht Club (One World Challenge) had breached rules prohibiting the transfer of technology from a syndicate to another. This book contains all the decisions rendered as well as the background and supporting material. It begins with an introductory text which enables a better understanding of the reasons why the Arbitration Panel was set up, of the way it has worked and of the main issues it has dealt with. The work will be of interest to any person involved in arbitration in general and in sport in particular. It will also provide an insight into the history of the America's Cup which, from the outcome in 1851, has been characterised by controversies and disputes.
