Systematic Catalogue


Notes on use:

Use the menu on the left side to navigate through the catalogue. A click on the "+" symbol shows the menu items below, a click on the "-" symbol hides them again.

Alphabetical search function

There is a lot of literature on some notations, e.g. biographies of persons or ships, shipyards, shipping companies or port cities. If you search via the notation, you will get a too extensive hit list. In some cases the result can be made more precise by limiting the number of hits in a second search step. In the left-hand selection menu, click on the option limit instead of search and simply enter the name of the port, shipping company, etc. you are looking for in the search field using the keyboard.
