This 1931 book is comprised of extracts from An Account of the Bell Rock Lighthouse (1824) by Robert Stevenson (1772-1850), a renowned Scottish civil engineer who specialised in the design and construction of lighthouses. A highly readable book that will be of value to anyone with an interest in civil engineering.We shall first proceed to a detail of the operations afloat, as they may be termed, or of the works upon the rock itself, ... for the Bell Rock service, to be employed as a tender for the floating-light, and as a stone-lighter for the use of the work.
