Boatbuilding Classics - Digitized E-Books

Google Book Search

Google scans the full text of many books (out of copyright protection) and stores them in its digital database.  You can search this database using keywords and click on a result to view pages from the book.  You will also find publisher's and bookseller information as well.  There are limitations, but the Google Book Search may be just the tool you need to find a book related to your research topic.
