"A Bibliography of Dutch Dictionaries" gives an overview of printed Dutch lexicography in the period 1477 to 1990. The bibliography contains approximately 4500 references to monolingual, bilingual and multilingual dictionaries, both general and specialized: terminological dictionaries, dialectological dictionaries, dictionaries of synonyms, biographical dictionaries and encyclopedias. For each dictionary, the following data are indicated: author, title, place of publication, publisher, year of publication, number of pages and all the various editions. The bibliography has been conceived as a practical reference work: all dictionaries are categorized into thematic groups, listed in the table of contents. Within every group, a further distinction is made between monolingual and multilingual dictionaries. This makes the bibliography easy to consult for all sorts of lexicographical questions. The accessibility is also increased by indexes of authors and languages. The bibliography is based on a systematically compiled corpus of sources as well as on the expertise of several specialists working in the field of Dutch lexicography.

Often celebrated as one of the most handsome, fast and versatile rigs to grace sailing vessels, the origins of the term 'schooner' have remained uncertain. The majority of studies have placed the main emphasis on the rig as it was applied to merchant vessels since around 1850.
This is the final and most extensive volume of a celebrated four- volume French study on the ship that formed the backbone of all the world's great navies in the eighteenth century. The magnificently illustrated, large-format book (9.5x12.5" presents detailed information on the manning and shiphandling of the French 74 of 1780. Some of the fascinating aspects covered are the officers and crew, life on board, naval evolutions and operations, and navigation. It is unarguably the most authoritative work ever published on the subject. Like its predecessors, Volume IV contains numerous illustrations and line drawings of superior quality.
