Subject Bibliography. - - - "No matter what other heavy-duty naval research classics you may have, including the ORN and Civil War Naval Chronology, you will want to own a copy of this one." - The Confederate Naval Historical Society Newsletter (October 1991). "The book is a superior reference work!" - Confederate Naval Museum. One of 460 copies, this is the most comprehensive research guide on the subject. It is the first work to describe in detail the production of Confederate presses dealing with or related to the Navy and Marine Corps. It consists of five parts: 1. Confederate Printed Naval Publications by Year (83 pages); 2. Chronology of Confederate Naval Administration and Operations (96 pages); 3. Biographical Data on Marine Corps and Naval Officers (116 pages); 4. Warships of the Confederate Navy (65 pages); and Annotated Subject Bibliography of Research Sources (158 pages). Without going elsewhere, the researcher can, by example, find note of a Confederate warship in the chronology part, flip to the Confederate warship part to find details on the warship, flip to the biographical part part to find details on the warship's commander, and then flip to the subject bibliography part to find titles of additional research sources on the warship. In past, at least four volumes were required to accomplish such research. A bookcase of titles was required to accomplish such research and have benefit of the direction provided in the subject bibliography or last part of this guide. Much of the information presented as extensive historical notes and content extracts in the Confederate publications part has simply not been available herefore outside of originals or reproductions of the listed publications. Extensively indexed, there are over 70 pages of indexing. There is a separate author and subject index for the Confederate naval imprints. That index has been cross referenced to Crandall, Harwell, and Parrish and Willingham imprint numbers. The index has been compiled to pick up multiple subject coverage when an imprint relates to more than one subject area. There is a separate author index for the subject bibliography which presents description of more than 1500 articles, books, and pamphlets on the Confederate Marine Corps and Navy. There is an in-depth subject index for the chronology, biography, and warship parts of the research guide. (PHOTOS ON REQUEST) Size: 11-5/16 Inches. Bookseller Inventory # 000004
