In 1912 Noel Methley published his comprehensive and well informed book about the history and work of life-boats. It describes the circumstances under which life-boats were invented and the establishing of a global Live-Saving-Service, the construction and equipment of life-boats, their different owners and conveyers, and their special characteristics and their usage all over the world. The focus lies on the system of life-boats in Great Britain, but readers also gain a lot of information about the development of marine life-saving work in the USA, Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, Denmark, Scandinavia Russia, France, Spain, Portugal, and in the British colonies.
