Included are accurate depictions of the ancient Pharos light in Alexandria, Egypt (one of the Seven Wonders of the World); a 2,000-year-old Roman lighthouse in England; the Bugio light off the Portuguese coast built in 1775; an early 18th-century pillared construction in Riga, Latvia; and 26 other sturdy structures, among them: Cloch Point, Scotland (1797); Green Point in Cape Town, South Africa (1824); Biscayne Bay, United States (1825); Europa Point, Gibraltar (1841); Farewell Spit on Golden Bay, New Zealand (1897); Fastnet Rock in West Cork, Ireland (1906); and Brockton Point in Vancouver, Canada (1915). Extensive captions accompany the detailed drawings, citing location, and historical data for each lighthouse.
