I found this compiled list of Steam engine and boiler books that have been scanned into use by Google-- there are links to a pdf file on each book.

Enjoy the over 100 books on this broad subject

Hi Sergio,
I could refer to the first post and say all of them, but if you are just starting I think you should start with;
Scale Model Steamboats - by Phillip Vaughan Williams
or
Model Marine Steam by Author: Stan Bray
After those if you are interested in building your own, then the K.N Harris's books Model Boilers and Boilermaking or Model Stationary and Marine Steam Engines.
Then work your way through the rest.
Regards,
Gerald.

I have in my hands right now, a copy of "The Steam Launch" by Richard M. Mitchell. Published in 1982 by International Marine Publishing Company.

It is on loan, from the San Francisco Maritime NHP Library. My wife is a librarian and she was able to obtain it via the Interlibrary Loan program.

It is an amazing reference book. For anyone interested in the history, the construction, and literally hundreds of photos of steam launches, steam engines, and steam boilers, and boat drawings and plans, this book is a must have. Unfortunately, it is out of print and must be located through antiquarian book sellers. I would love to keep this book, but alas it must be returned.

You are lucky, I have tried to borrow a copy for years, but there was only one available in the Canadian system and it has been listed as missing. I will add it to the list.
