Product Description

The Encyclopedia of Australian Shipwrecks includes no less than 15,600 alphabetic entries of vessels of all rigs, sizes, and shapes, that have been lost, or involved in a major maritime incident. It includes vessels lost on 'The Australia Run', and vessels lost anywhere in the world, providing they have some connection with Australia, through previous arrival in Australia, construction, or ownership.

The Encyclopedia is the definitive reference on Australian ship losses. Such a listing has never before been achieved. That it has now been published is due to the extensive primary research of some three hundred authors of shipwreck and maritime publications.

The objective is to provide a short entry for each vessel, with relevant physical details, history, and information on her loss or incident. This is followed by a code to a published book or reference so as to provide the reader with a means of finding further information; the encyclopedia is thus very much a bibliography. The ship listing may also include other incidents relevant to the vessel, an indication if her actual location if known, and her condition as she lies on the seabed, shore or reef.

The Encyclopedia of Australian Shipwrecks is a most valuable reference for divers, geneologists, maritime archaeologists, maritime historians - indeed anyone interested in our maritime heritage.
