Shipwreck! Courage and Endurance in the Southern Seas

by Burman, Jose

Condition: See description

(Cape Town: Human & Rousseau, 1986) 0798120061. 8vo; laminated pictorial boards; pp. 140, incl. index; plates; map. Very good condition. "These are very human stories for it is the characters rather than the events that hold our interest. There are plain tales of heroism - Wolraad Woltemade (whom everyone knows) and Jochem Willemsz (whom virtually nobody knows); there is horror in the dreadful privations of the survivors of the Cospatrick, which caught fire at sea; and there is fufilment in the inspired leadership of such men as Nuno Volho Pereira and Sir Ernest Shackleton. A truly gripping collection of disasters at sea, masterfully recounted." .

Collecting Classic Supernatural Fiction

Classic supernatural fiction is distinct from contemporary horror because it is more literate and often relies upon poetic subtlety rather than unpleasant gratuity to create an atmosphere. Enter if you dare!
