Mel Fisher's Treasure
Tropical cyclones are a common occurrence throughout the world and may leave a varied toll upon the populations they impact. Their importance for us however, is the toll they lay upon the maritime trade. Much of our ocean treasure is made available because of hurricane and weather related shipwrecks. These devastating storms also expose treasure coins and artifacts along the beaches they cross. So they are both a blessing and a curse which make for the most fascinating study and review in past, present or in future forecasting. Each storm tells a story as well as the stories told by the souls they've touched. Records and reports are kept, tales shared and books are written about these windy events and about the people and places they visit. Here we hope to explore these powerful phenomena of nature, the hurricane. Papertique

- The Pirates of Panama by Alexandre Exquemelin (c. 1645-1707) Esquemeling served the Buccaneers in the capacity of barber-surgeon, and was present at all their exploits. Little did he suspect that his first hand observations would some day be cherished as the only authentic and true history of the Buccaneers and Marooners of the Spanish Main.
A General Collection of the Best and Most Interesting Voyages and Travels in All Parts of the World is a 17-volume compilation of travel narratives assembled by the Scottish historian and poet John Pinkerton (1758‒1826), first published in Great Britain in 1808‒14. A contemporary and acquaintance of the historian Edward Gibbon and the novelist Sir Walter Scott, Pinkerton wrote books on Scottish history and poetry, numismatics, and other topics, as well as his own plays and poems. Many of the narratives were newly translated into English from French, German, Dutch, Latin, Italian, Spanish, and other European languages. Each volume is illustrated with plates. A six-volume American edition of Pinkerton’s collection of voyages was published in Philadelphia in 1810‒12.
