A Gordon S. Maxwell Bibliography

A list of books written by Gordon S. Maxwell. Note the title of The Rhymes of a Motor Launch which is a play on The Rubiyat of Omar Khayyam which would have been clearly perceived by Maxwell's fellow R.N.V.R. officers for whom the book was compiled. So far, I haven't found any books written by him after 1935, the year his brother Donald Maxwell died. I'm not sure what the connection is—if any.
