IIRC there've been other book quotes in the 12 that couldn't be traced, verbatim, to any particular book. "Nests Abroad" may be the most glaring. I think there are also some books referenced where the titles haven't matched up with anything currently identifiable. Given that in SA John was bringing The Seaman's Handy Book, a US Navy publication, he evidently had a better-than-normal acquaintance with American naval and maritime writings.
