William Mowll in his book about SS Great Britain refers to his books where he gathered his knowledge about steam propelled ships from. There is a photo of some, but not all were mentioned explicitly in the bibliography section.

Especially this book on the upper half of the attached image: Does anybody know this book?

I would like to know more about the complete title, author, publisher and may be the isbn....


Best regards

OK, I will tell you what I thought when I first saw the picture: it looks like one of the publications put out by museums to describe the exhibits. The second booklet in the picture has the same style. So, no, I do not know the book but ... look for museum publications about SS Great Britain to get you started.

Have you tried a Google Image Search?

Hi Bruce,


that is what I thought: A publication by a museum or collection set up by the curator documenting some exhibits and being distributed in an extreme small number...  But anyhow, maybe someone has seen that thing already.


I checked with various bookseller portal sites.

By the way: All the other stuff from the bibliography of Mowll about the SS Great Britain is already here...

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
