VESSELS BUILT AT SUNDERLAND

1930, 1931, 1932, 1933, 1934, 1935, 1936, 1937, 1938, 1939.

1930 (data so far has been built up from elsewhere in the site. Can you provide a list? Just a start.)

A copy of Lloyd's Register of 1930/31 was sold via e-Bay on Sep. 25, 2014 (1 & 2). I cannot tell you what it sold for. It was listed at U.S. $345.00 but the vendor accepted a presumably lower best offer for the volume.

1933 (Just a start. Can you provide a list? Do please advise me if you have data. Corrections will surely be required in the data that follows.)

In early May 2014, a copy of Lloyd's Register of 1933/34 was eBay available. Alas, I seem not to have recorded the price at which it was sold or, indeed, if it was sold at all.
Another copy is e-Bay available in Mar. 2015 (1) at U.S. $153.87 (Australian $199 converted). It is surely not appropriate that I comment in any way upon the vendor's listing price. But I do comment on the stated shipping charges to Canada & North America - Australian $270 or approx U.S. $209 - charges which to me seem to be incredibly high. Such high charges likely eliminate all bids from purchasers from outside Australia & New Zealand. Every country's Post Office charges, today, an arm & a leg to ship a package internationally. Which charges will surely impact eBay in the future. It puzzles me how televisions, autos, clothing & most other things can be shipped into North America at incredibly cheap prices for discounted sale at Walmart, Costco & others, when a single albeit heavy book costs U.S. $209 to ship. Why are the Post Offices of the world unable to access anywhere near the same pricing structure? I have an interest in a number of later editions of Lloyd's Register today eBay available from the U.S.A., but again the shipping charges are so high as to totally negate my interest. My thoughts on the subject, at any rate!
