Lightships and Lighthouses
by Frederick A. Talbot
Publisher: J. B. Lippincott Co. 1913
Number of pages: 335

Rather my object has been to relate how the difficulties, peculiar and prodigious, have been overcome by the builders in their efforts to mark some terrible danger-spots, both on the mainland and isolated sea-rocks.
