"Marine Encyclopaedic Dictionary" By Eric Sullivan Just Published
As the title implies, this is a technical book dealing with the shipping industry. It is a reference manual packed with detailed information r e l a t i n g to shipping, navigation, marine insurance, maritime and commercial law, chartering, and ship operations. The bulk of the 510-page, hardbound book is taken up by the compilation of thousands of maritime terms and technical expressions defined in detail, and all the important abbreviations normally used in the business of shipping, seafaring, trading, and commerce, listed in alphabetical order.
The appendices comprising tabulated general information, geographical data, and conversion tables add to the value of the book, making it an excellent reference volume for shipowners, underwriters, brokers and agents, freight exporters and importers, p r a c t i t i o n e r s and students of maritime and commercial law, banks, research institutes, and port authorities.
