This is an original 1888 book titled Lights and Fog Signals of the United States with over 90 photographs of lighthouses and lightships. Since the cover wrap is gone, we are not sure who published this, but it does appear to be a government publication. Nearly 200 pages, this one starts with page 13 and ends with an index followed by 23 pages of lighthouse and lightship photos, four photos per page, that were probably taken in 1887. The very old lightship photos are worth the weight of the book alone. Book has foxing and is in fair condition. This is a great publication for anyone researching lighthouses or for any museum collection and true lighthouse collection.
