Preserving Maritime America
A Cultural History Of The Nation'S Great Maritime Museums
de James M. Lindgren
Sobre o livro
While Britain and other countries have established national museums to nurture their seagoing traditions, America has left that responsibility to private institutions. In this first-of-its-kind history, James Lindgren focuses on a half-dozen of these great museums, ranging from Salem's East India Marine Society to San Francisco's Maritime Museum.
