[ANDERSON, R. C.]. A list of Printed Books on Shipbuilding, Rigging, Seamanship and Kindred Subjects for the Period of Wooden sailing Ships and Galleys.

[s.i.]. [s.n.], [s.d., c. 1930?]
Quarto. [74] leaves of typescript, hole punched at gutters, loosely tied with string in contemporary brown paper wrappers. Extremities worn, upper panel detached. Leaves lightly creased, some chipping to margins. Occasional manuscript correction in the author's hand.
An apparently unpublished bibliography of books relating to ship construction and seafaring in the age of sail, compiled by distinguished maritime historian and founding member of the Society for Nautical Research Roger Charles Anderson (1883-1976), many of which formed a part of his private collection.

OCLC and COPAC together record a single typescript volume (and a photocopy of the same) by Anderson at the National Maritime Museum entitled Bibliography of printed books on shipbuilding, rigging, seamanship and kindred subjects of the period of wooden sailing ships and galleys, tentatively dated 1930 and running to 110 leaves; perhaps suggesting that the work offered here was an early draft.
