Size: 8.5″ x 11.25″
Editions: The first edition (not stated) was published by the author, under the auspices of The Institute of Marine Science, University of Miami, Coral Gables, Florida, and appears to be a PhD dissertation. It is a hardback book (no dust jacket issued). The book was later expanded to 328 pages and republished by the Academy of the Arts and Sciences of the Americas, Miami, Florida (1968), under the title, “Hurricanes of the Caribbean and Adjacent Regions, 1492-1800”, in hardback (no dust jacket issued).
Description: This book, which looks very much like a PhD dissertation, is a report issued under contract to the US Weather Bureau. It is a scholarly work detailing the Caribbean hurricanes during the 17th century and documents the many shipwrecks that resulted. This is a superb research book for Caribbean treasure hunters.
