Publisher's Description

Thoroughly updated and expanded with even more information on the world’s lighthouses, The Lighthouse Encyclopedia is the definitive reference on these maritime beacons and coastal icons.

A wealth of facts and history fill this beautifully designed book, packed with full-color and vintage photos, containing everything a lighthouse lover or maritime historian wants to know about lighthouse history, changing technologies, lighthouse keepers, and the lenses themselves. A detailed index of more than 150 lighthouses around the world offers quick and easy access to basic information: the height, age, elevation, optic type and status for every lighthouse! An appendix listing lighthouse groups nationwide makes it easy to see these historic treasures, visit museums and get involved with preservation.

Editorial Reviews

"The Lighthouse Encyclopedia is more than a complete guide to those magnificent towers of light. It is a remarkable work of literature filled with the vast spirit and endless mystery of great waters and those who work upon them. For all of us who love lighthouses and their keepers, this is a book to be read and savored, each page as bright as the spokes of light that yet flash across the sea to guide mariners home."
--Homer Hickam, author of October Sky and The Keeper's Son


"Lighthouse lovers everywhere will welcome this new fact-filled resource. As reminders of a rich maritime heritage, lighthouses need and deserve our help. This book will attract many new recruits to the cause of lighthouse preservation worldwide."
--Rosalie Davis Gibb, Chairman of the World Lighthouse Society
