          "Craig O'Donnell" 

this from my last trip to the Ches Bay Maritime Museum. It seems to fit
with your pages as four or five of 'your authors' are listed here.

Forest & Stream, May 1885.

THE following list will answer many of the questions as to information on
various subjects connected with yachting and canoeing which are frequently
asked us, and will no doubt prove useful to many of our readers. Most of
the books can still be obtained, though a few are out of print. The demand
for this class of literature is rapidly increasing with the growth of water
sports, and it will probably not be many years before the list is doubled.

Editor Forest and Stream:

 Inclosed herewith I send you a catalogue of American publications on
nautical subjects.

 An idea of the work involved in its preparation maybe gained when I state
it was necessary to carefully examine the catalogues of about thirty
publishers, our principal library catalogues, and all the government lists
available. Owing to the desultory manner in which works on these subjects
were published, I fear many omissions and errors have taken place, and
trust your readers will kindly point them out: THOS. I. MILLER. New York.
