Comments: Exhibition guide; pamphlet; illustrated
Size: 8.5″ x 11″

Editions: The first edition (not stated) was published by the Sea Venture Trust, Bermuda (1986), in paperback.
Description: This museum exhibition catalog describes the wreck of the “Sea Venture”, an English ship carrying colonists to America, in a storm off the coast of Bermuda in 1609. All of the passengers and crew survived, but the ship eventually sank. Many believe it was this incident that inspired Shakespeare to write The Tempest in 1610. Teddy Tucker and Edmund Downing started searching for the wreck in the late 1950s, and it was eventually located by Downing (a direct descendent of one of those aboard the ship) in 1958. The authors excavated the wreck beginning in 1978. Many artifacts are pictured.
