Synopsis: Thoroughly updated and expanded with even more information on the world’s lighthouses, The Lighthouse Encyclopedia is the definitive reference on these maritime beacons and coastal icons.
A wealth of facts and history fill this beautifully designed book, packed with full-color and vintage photos, containing everything a lighthouse lover or maritime historian wants to know about lighthouse history, changing technologies, lighthouse keepers, and the lenses themselves. A detailed index of more than 150 lighthouses around the world offers quick and easy access to basic information: the height, age, elevation, optic type and status for every lighthouse! An appendix listing lighthouse groups nationwide makes it easy to see these historic treasures, visit museums and get involved with preservation.

From the Back Cover: “A must for the library of every lighthouse lover . . .”
―Great Lakes Seaway “A remarkable work of literature filled with the vast spirit and endless
mystery of great waters and those who work upon them.”
―Homer Hickam, author of October Sky and The Keeper's Son “More than just another coffee-table pretty face . . . contains a wealth of information . . .”
―Southern Boating Lighthouses! For more than two thousand years, these maritime beacons have marked the earth's most dangerous shores, guiding ships to safety and offering hope to sailors lost at sea. Packed with information, drama, and stunning color photographs, this award-winning volume, updated and now available in paperback, is your one-stop resource for all things lighthouse-related. Look inside for:
LIGHTHOUSES THROUGH HISTORY
An in-depth look at the history of light towers, from those of the Pharaohs in ancient Egypt to the Cape Hatteras tower, recently saved from destruction
A LIGHTHOUSE LEXICON
An alphabetical guide to people, places, and equipment associated with lighthouses, accentuated by accompanying illustrations
LIGHTHOUSES AROUND THE WORLD
Facts and photos of lighthouses from the United States, Canada, England, Scotland, Ireland, France, Spain, Norway, Australia, and several other countries
