Extract from the author's introduction - 'The literature on the River Thames is indeed vast and this work is an attempt to bring within the confines of a modest volume, some part of such material which may be useful to book collectors, antiquarian and second-hand booksellers and hopefully, form a basis for anyone undertaking research on some aspect of the River. There is a fairly steady stream of publications on the Thames and this first bibliography attempt will require up-dating in future years. Contents - I Barrage, Barrier, Floods, Drainage. II.
