Lists of Merchant Vessels of the United States. 1868 - 1969
Washington,: GPO, various dates. Color and b/w plates, ills. Various paginations. A centuryÂ’s worth of Lists of Merchant Vessels, lacking only a few years, and with no extended gaps. All the texts and most of the bindings are in Good - VG condition, with the exception of the 1860s and 70s, which were bound in fragile leather which has split, leaving the boards present but detached. Many are removed from various customs houses, depositories and government and institutional libraries. Aside from title page stamps almost none of them are marred by excessive library markings. One volume, 1923, is lacking pp. 122-138, which were never bound in. The rest are complete. Missing volumes are: 1867 (the First Annual), 1869, 1870, 1873, 1875, 1876, 1880, 1883, 1886, 1891, 1933, 1935, 1937, 1940, 1947-49, 1960, 1965-67. The very rare 1917 volume is present in this run. Each volume provides physical specifications for every registered seagoing vessel and yacht, whether sailing or steam, along with number, signal letters, where and when built, home port, and name of owner. This is an unparalleled research tool for treasure hunters, historians and maritime researchers of all sorts. 81 volumes, postage at cost.
