The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Marine Review (Cleveland, OH), 5 Nov 1899

Full Text

"The Little Red Book.". By accident the above name was given to a vest-pocket directory of owners and officers of lake vessels. For several years past the Marine Review Publishing Co. has collected and arranged in handy form for reference the appointments of captains and engineers of lake vessels. No name was especially selected for the first issue of this list. It happened to be bound in a red cover. It became popular at the outset on account of its value to everybody having dealings with vessels or the owners of vessels on the great lakes. It was a little red book and everybody referred to it by that name. The name was adopted and placed on the cover of the book. Now there is inquiry each year for hundreds of copies of the "Little Red Book" long before the list is completed. The 1899 issue is just off the press. This list shows at a glance the name of owner, captain and engineer of any lake vessel. It is also a collection of ship owners with their post office address. It sells at $1.
