About My Library
A few thousand books focused primarily on small boat sailing/cruising, boat-building, and naval history. If you've ever come across Toy's "Adventurer's Afloat" you'll know what I collect.

I tend to focus on a range of individuals not always (though often) writing in a maritime context: E. Keble Chatterton, Frank Cowper, E.F. Knight, Donald Maxwell, Gordon S. Maxwell, Charles Pears, and Arthur Watts to name a few. In addition to writing their own books, these men were often talented, prolific artist/illustrators whose works graced the pages of many a book and magazine. The common thread is that they were all sailors of a corinthian nature in the years between about 1880 and 1914.

I will continue to add books to this list - I've added all of the ISBN-enabled books in my local BookCollector database - but it'll be a slow process given the manual nature of things.
