The National Towage Museum owns a large library containing a unique collection of maritime books, especially about the towing service. Part of this are the shipping indexes over many years, for instance Lloyd's. Often the origin of our books are open-handedness and inheritance. Being a visitor of the museum you are allowed to consult these documents. If you are in the possession of maritime books or documents, and you are considering to dispose of these, we would appreciate it very much if you would decide to donate them to the museum.
A limited number of book titles are for sale. You can order these in the museum shop, on the book fair, via the website or by telephone.
In association with the National Towage Museum the following books have been published:
Nico J. Ouwehand - De Smit-Lloyd Story
Nico J. Ouwehand - Van Walegang en Berghout
Maarten Bezuyen - De Hudson / Driemaal Is Scheepsrecht
De zeesleper Thames in de Tweede Wereldoorlog
