World Ship Society - PUBLICATIONS - Publication Search
The following table includes all books and other publications that are listed on any of our webpages - but not the books in our Chatham Library (a separate searchable listing can be found by going to "Chatham", then clicking on "Library".) A search feature on this listing will allow you to look for a title, an author or the location of the listing on our various pages.
The search will check not only WSS publications, but any Member-authored publication that we have listed on any of our pages. To find the listing, look for the "Category" and click on that item in the list to the left. Some items may be listed more than once, under different locations - for example a WSS publication such as "Building for Victory" will turn up under WSS Books Available, WSS Publication History and Society News. Note the Ref. number to the left of the title to determine if the title you are seeking is listed in more than one location.
Clicking on a category from the list to the left will bring you to the listing for that category. From there you scan down the listings which are in alphabetical order. Items starting with a number will precede the "A"s.
The database will be updated as additional information becomes available.

Hints for searching:
To search for an author, enter as little information as necessary, as various books by the same author may have the author's name presented differently. For example, if you were looking for "William H. Miller", enter just "Miller" as some books show this author as Bill, some as W.H. and some as Jr.
Sorting can be done by book title, or author. Results will depend on the data that has been incorporated into the database.
Because there are so many books listed on our site, it was necessary to break the listings into several categories
WSS Books Available - books that presently available for sale from the Society
