Books About Plymouth
This page is still under construction - many other books are listed on the Lookups page.
These listings are for books that are in the public domain, and of which page images or transcrptions are available at one or more sites. Following each listing you will find links to the locations where each book may be found. All of the sites listed are free of charge, but copies may also be found at subscription sites such as Ancestry.com and Heritage Quest Online (Note that access to subscription sites may be freely available at your local library).
More recent books which are not in the public domain, as well as some books in the public domain which are not yet available online, are listed on the Books page.
Within each category the books are listed in order by the year in which they were written or first published.
This is far from an exhausive list, but it includes the major reference works in each category as well as some less known works with which the webmaster is familiar. I have tried to include complete publishing information, but information for editions which I have not seen may not be definitive.
