Ship Enthusiasts for the Bowspirit Kids

For the benefit of the Bowspirit Kids, co-initiator Michael Speckenbach sells his comprehensive shipping library. The books, magazines and annuals for sale are listed in the following overviews:
The majority of the publications are very well preserved. From the period between "Year of publication" and "Archive entry" you can usually deduce whether they were acquired directly and are first holdings or not. First holdings mean that the books have been read or browsed only once.

The books are sold in a private bidding process. If you are interested, send your bid with a clear description of the desired publication(s) and your bid price for each individual publication by e-mail to

The bids will be evaluated on the 15th and 30th of each month. If the bid corresponds to the value of the publication(s), the bidder receives an offer by e-mail, which he can accept by payment.

The proceeds from the sale will be donated to Bowspirit Kids gemeinnützige GmbH.

Please note the following:
  • The aim here is not to make a "bargain", but to offer an appropriate price for the publication(s) and thus support an important project in favour of sick and traumatised children and youth through one's own hobby. So you can make yourself and the children happy in one breath.
