Description: This book is about the early days of professional sunken treasure hunting (1687-1830s)…beginning with William Phips and his salvage of the “Concepcion” and ending with development of a “modern” diving suit. It is significant to the treasure hunter because it specifies what treasure was reportedly aboard a multitude of shipwrecks and what was actually recovered between 1687 and the 1830s.
