Blue Book of American Shipping.— In

issuing this standard marine directory

the publishers announce that for the future

it will be issued biennially instead

of annually. While the volume aims at

covering the marine interests of North

America, and does so pretty thoroughly,

it gives special attention to the marine

interests of the Great Lakes. This field.

which constitutes the largest feeders of

the railways, and has an important bearing,

particularly on the Atlantic Ocean

trade, is thoroughly covered. This trade

is of growing importance, and the statistics

compiled in reference to it are of

special value. The lists of vessels, owners,

etc., and of shipbuilding and repairing

yards, dry docks, and of the various

Interests connected with the owning and

operation of vessels are complete. The

Blue Book is published at $5 by the Penton

Publishing Co., Cleveland, Ohio, and

copies may he obtained from the Railway

and Marine World Book Department.
