Some background information on The American Seaport Series


In 1940 Doubleday Doran launched its idea for the Seaport Series with the release of The Port of Gloucester by James B. Connolly.  Their intent in sponsoring the series (besides wishing to make money by entering the competitive fray of Americana Series titles with other publishers) was to record the history of America's most influential seaports.  Twelve books were completed in the series before Doubleday brought the series to an end.  It is curious though that no book was brought forward in the series dealing with the closest seaport to Doubleday Doran's offices:  The Port of New York.
