Summary

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.
