Hi all,

Here I am again, flooding the market for free old books! The following are
mostly in the maritime history category, with some general local history
thrown in toward the end. Free on van delivery. They are either duplicate or
just a bit outside our collecting scope.

Please request by item number and include your library's name.

Thanks,

Jill
