We at SSHSA have a huge inventory of duplicate, surplus Lloyds Registers, Merchant Vessels of the United States, ABS, as well as many other titles that have been in storage for many years. We are hoping that our colleagues in the museum community, other maritime organizations, and libraries or non-profits might be missing some of these issues, and desire to fill their collection. We would offer most of these to qualified organizations free of charge for pick-up, or at cost for postage if shipping is required.
Here is a list of available books: Duplicate & Surplus Reference Books & Registers
