1.  Boat Building and Boating by D.C. BEARD  (1911- 1931) 201 pages

With Many Illustrations by the Author

Author’s Introduction : THIS is not a book for yacht-builders, but it is intended for beginners in the art of boat-building, for boys and men who wish
to make something with which they may navigate the waters of ponds, lakes, or streams. It begins with the most primitive
crafts composed of slabs or logs and works up to scows, houseboats, skiffs, canoes and simple forms of sailing craft, a motorboat, and there it stops. There are so many books and magazines devoted to the higher arts of ship-building for the graduates to use, besides the many manufacturing houses which furnish all the parts of a sail-boat, yacht, or motor-boat for the ambitious boat-builder to put together himself, that it is unnecessary for the author to invade that territory. Many of the designs in this book have appeared in magazines to which the author contributed, or in his own books on general subjects, and all these have been successfully built by hundreds of boys and men

2. ANCIENT AND MODERN SHIPS. PART I  (1906)   196 pages

WOODEN SAILING-SHIPS.  SIR GEORGE C.V HOLMES K.C.V.O C.B.
SECRETARY OF THE INSTITUTION OF NAVAL ARCHITECTS
WITH SEVENTY-FOUR ILLUSTRATIONS.


Author’s Introduction : AN endeavour has been made in this handbook, as far as space and scantiness of material would permit, to trace the history of the development of wooden ships from the earliest times down to our own. Unfortunately, the task has been exceedingly difficult ; for the annals of shipbuilding have been very badly kept down to a quite recent period, and the statements made by old writers concerning ships are not only meagre but often extremely inaccurate. Moreover, the drawings and paintings of vessels which have survived from the classical period are few and far between, and were made by artists who thought more of pictorial effect than of accuracy of detail

3. Canoe and Boat Building  (1889)   264 paages

Author’s Introduction : COMPLETE MANUAL FOR AMATEURS.
CONTAINING PLAIN AND COMPREHENSIVE DIRECTIONS
FOR THE CONSTRUCTION OF CANOES, ROWING
AND SAILING BOATS AND
HUNTING CRAFT.
BY
W. P. STEPHENS,
Canoeing Editor of Forest and Stream.
WITH NUMEROUS ILLUSTRATIONS AND FIFTY PLATES OF
WORKING DRAWINGS.
FOURTH EDITION.
REVISED AND EXTENDED TO DATE.
NEW YORK:
FOREST AND STREAM PUBLISHING Co.
1889.

Author’s Introduction : THE character and object of this book are set forth on its title page. It is a manual designed for the practical assistance of those who wish to build their own canoes The number of boating men who find pleasure merely in sailing a boat is small compared with those who delight not
only in handling, but as well in planning, building, improving or "tinkering" generally on their pet craft, and undoubtedly the latter derive the greater amount of pleasure from the sport. They not only feel a pride in the result of their work, but their pleasure goes on, independent of the seasons.

4. The elements of wood ship construction (1919) 230 pages

BY W. H. CURTIS.  NAVAL ARCHETITECT AND MARINE ENGINEER
FIRST EDITION

Preface to Pamphlet, Part I, issued by the United States Shipping
Board Emergency Fleet Corporation, for use in its classes in Wood
Shipbuilding.
Author’s Introduction : This text on wood shipbuilding was prepared by W. H. Curtis, Portland, Oregon, for the Education and Training Section of the Emergency
Fleet Corporation. It is intended for the use of carpenters and others, who, though skilled in their work, lack the detail knowledge of ships
necessary for the efficient performance of their work in the yard. Sea-going vessels are generally built according to the rules of some
Classification Society, and all important construction and fastening details have to be passed upon by the Classification Society under whose
inspection the vessel is to be built. Due to this fact, requirements may vary in detail from types of construction here explained. It is hoped,
however, that this book may be helpful to shipbuilding classes and to individual men in the yard.

By CHARLES DESMOND

Introduction

Author’s Introduction : THE object of this book is to place at the disposal
of builders of wood ships some much needed information about construction and equipment. Each principal part of a vessel's construction is explained, the information being arranged in such a manner that the reader can either use the book for reference purposes and quickly obtain from it desired information about any selected part of hull or equipment, or he can read the book as one continuous story covering the construction and equipment of a vessel. If it is desired to make use of the book for reference purposes, turn to indexed name of part or piece you desire information about. (The headings are arranged alphabetically.) The photographs used to make the illustrations Figs.

6. Models of ships and boats (1913) 282 pages

ANTIQUITES EGYPTIENNES

by PAR M. G. A. REISNER

WOODEN BOATS
IMITATING THE PAPYRUS RAFT IN FORM.
Author’s Introduction : A series of river boats, manifestly of wood, are represented in the reliefs and in the models whose form suggests a derivation from that of the papyrus raft. The bow and stern-pieces are rouglily cylindrical and end in buttons which are decorated to resemble papyrus (lowers. Even the bands are shown with which the bundle of reed stems were bound (like the bundle columns with open (lower capital). This boat bears a canopy with a figure of the owner, a masi and sail, and a crew of six or more padfllors or rowers, and is thus sharply distinguished
from the ship.

men have passed through their boyhood days without having built boats at some time.

11. The Boys Book of Boats (1868) 400 pages

BY William Henry Giles Kingston

Author’s Introduction : My endeavour in the following pages has been  to give my young friends an account of the  vessels and boats, of every rig and size, to be 
found floating on the waters in all parts of the world. I hope that I may have in most points succeeded ; but the subject is a very extensive 
one, and I dare say that there are many craft in various directions differing from those I have described, though not, I believe, in any material 
respect. I have written for those who wish really to gain useful information about vessels.
