Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A reissue, in a revised format and design, of Quinn's popular book of Atlantic coast shipwrecks, featuring more than 300 photos, from the earliest days of photography until modern times.

Book News Annotation:

Quinn, a news photographer, has been taking and collecting photos of shipwrecks since he filmed the sinking of the Andrea Doria in 1956. He traces the history of eastern US shipping through b&w photos, from the 19th century to recent years, and documents some of the most famous maritime disasters of the Atlantic Coast. The book was first published by Parnassus Imprints in 1988. This new edition has been edited and redesigned. Quinn has written other books on shipwrecks.
