Manned Submersibles by
This book was published by the Office of the Oceanographer of the Navy, and is one of the difinitive references on submarines and their construction. Although published more than 35 years ago, it still contains a wealth of information for anyone interested in building their own submarine.

Secrets of the Submarine
This work is even older, and was first published in 1917, in the earliest days of the manned submersibile. I first thought I would find nothing useful here for a modern builder of submarines in the 21st century, but to my surprise I learned a lot from this book. Good sound principles, and worth a read.

I will be adding more here as time goes by, so remember to check back again...
