"'Florida's Territorial Lighthouses, 1821-1845,' is clearly a cut above most lighthouse books published in recent years. Author Taylor really did his homework in researching the earliest lighthouses to dot the Florida shores." -- Wayne Wheeler. U.S. Lighthouse Society.

This book is a limited edition publication, numbered, signed by the author, and issued in honor of the Sesquicentennial of Florida Statehood, 1845-1995. As the only book to date dealing with these early lighthouses, this book details the construction and early history of the sixteen lighthouse towers at the thirteen light stations which were constructed in Florida during the Territorial Years of 1821 to 1845. The information comes from documents from the National Archives, Library of Congress, letters from the keepers, transcripts of other documents which are no longer in existence, and other sources. It is a one-of-a-kind book which should be included in every collection of Florida history. The book includes 300 pages of text and 80 black and white photographs, maps, and drawings, many of which have never been published before.
