New titles at Project Gutenberg

Several books of maritime interest have been added to Project Gutenberg:

As We Swept Through The Deep by Gordon Stables, 1894.
The sailor's word-book by W.H. Smyth, 1867.
With Cochrane the Dauntless by G.A. Henty, 1897.

And not a maritime title, but of interest those involved with historic photography, is American Handbook of the Daguerrotype by Samuel D. Humphrey, 1858.

Thanks Heather! The Sailor's Word-book will be a great resource online.

I've found it useful *and* entertaining; this is my favorite definition so far:
"BAVIER. The beaver of a helmet."
