Story
Introduction
Interested in the history of Vancouver Island, especially between about 1850 and 1960. Have published an article "Vancouver Island in the Empire" in The Journal of Imperial and Commonwealth History (London), September 2005. I have on my shelf a printed copy of "Lloyd's Register of British and Foreign Shipping from 1st July, 1864, to the 30th JUNE, 1865 (London, Cox and Wyman, Printers, 74 & 75, Great Queen Street, Lincoln's-Inn Fields, 1864, its pages are not numbered but it is most useful. What I am looking for is something similar for other years in the nineteenth century.

Writersworld Limited has given me excellent service in producing a serious book from a difficult text. Unlike its competitors, Writersworld has a director, Graham Cook, who is attentive, honest, and competent. Most of the competitors turn out to be amorphous agencies with no visible director in contact with the author. Graham Cook was on the telephone to me weekly, sometimes daily, and was always ready to answer questions. He convinced me that his firm was honest, candid, and above-board with no unexpected or hidden costs. The editor he appointed was rigorous and careful, doing what could be done by someone not familiar with the subject of my book. His criticisms were sometimes severe but I had to be grateful for them--better suffer an editor's criticisms early than a reader's or reviewer's later on!! I give Graham Cook and his firm full marks and recommend them to anyone interested. They gave full value for their costs.
