Near Fine copy! 1970 Taplinger Pub. Co, New York. There are two popular misconceptions about shipwrecks in Cornwall. The first is that most wrecks were caused by wreckers' shining misleading lights from the cliffs, in the hope of bringing vessels laden with bounty onto the rocks. This was never required, as nature, with it's strong winds, heavy seas and sharp rocks, was a deadly combination ensuring a constant stream of wrecked vessels. The second misconception is that the wreckers' deliberately killed survivors of shipwrecks to ensure they could carry off the hapless ships' cargoes. Though there were inevitable occasions when violence was used, far more wreckers' were have likely to have drowned than the possibility of sailors being murdered. The combination of poor wages and valuable cargoes was too much to resist, with wreckers' often taken to the same treacherous seas that had caused the original occupants to abandon ship. Shipwrecks were, however, thought to be fair game across all sections of society with sometimes hundreds of people following a troubled ship along the coast in anticipation of a rich harvest. This is perhaps best summed up by the localised version of the saying "it's an ill wind that blows no good to Cornwall". Hundreds, perhaps thousands of wrecks, have occurred around the Cornish coast

"This book is illustrated with many remarkable photographs, some hitherto unpublished, while the charts showing the precise locations of some 30 wrecks will be of particular interest to both amateur and professional divers. Strung across the western approaches to the English Channel, the 145 islands and rocks of Scilly present a low-lying barrier ten miles wide which has taken an appalling toll of shipping and lives over the years.
