PREFACE

T

The “ Encyclopædia of Ships and Shipping ” has been compiled to furnish information of value to those in any way connected with nautical matters.

In preparing the work, it has been necessary, in order to confine the matter to one volume, to make the article as concise as possible, and where space has prevented the subject being dealt with to any great length, standard authorities are quoted to enable the reader to obtain further information on the subject. This applies particularly to Law and Insurance and in most instances the leading Admiralty Court cases on the question are quoted.

The Editor is grateful to the many gentlemen of distinction who have been good enough to assist him with their advice and aid in the com. pilation of the work. Among these may be mentioned :

The Naval Attachés at the Embassies in London, for their kindness in furnishing information enabling him to include in this work particulars of vessels in the various foreign navies.
