Lightships and Lighthouses
by

Publisher: J. B. Lippincott Co.
Number of pages: 335

Description:
This volume is not a history of lightships and lighthouses; neither is it a technical treatise. 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.
