Editions: The first edition (not stated) was published simultaneously by The World Publishing Company, Cleveland, and Nelson, Foster and Scott, Limited, Canada, in 1968. Both books are hardbacks with dust jackets. I have seen two varieties of the US edition…one with a pictorial binding and one with brown boards.
Description: This adolescent book overviews the history of the Spanish treasure fleets, including the “flota” system, the voyage outbound from Spain, the New World ports of Cartagena, Callao, Panama City, Nombre de Dios, Acapulco, Vera Cruz and Havana, and the trip back to Spain.
