A Great Sea Mystery - The True Story of The "Mary Celeste" - Lockhart, J., G. Much has been written about the famous derelict, found in mid-ocean without a soul aboard or a clue to explain why she had been abandoned. From time to time solutions have appeared from the records of some alleged survivor or eye-witness, but, as Mr. Lockhart shows, such solutions are all spurious. The mystery remains to puzzle and to fascinate losing none of its attraction with the passage of years. Here for the first time the facts, taken from official and authoritative documents, are given in full, and the various explanations are in turn examined and refuted. Finally, Mr. Lockhart, from information obtained from unquestionable sources, discloses what is undoubtedly the genuine solution of this greatest of all mysteries of the sea. Contents Include: - The Finding of the Ship - The Mary Celeste - At Gibraltar - Some Theories - The Story of Habakuk Jephson - "Solutions" - More Solutions - The Story of Abel F

Upon closer inspection, it was discovered that the crew of the ship was missing. There was no sign of a struggle and the cargo had not been ransacked. What became of the crew has remained one of the sea's greatest mysteries for over 100 years.

More than two centuries after Master’s Mate Fletcher Christian led a mutiny against Lieutenant William Bligh on a small, armed transport vessel called Bounty, the true story of this enthralling adventure has become obscured by the legend. Combining vivid characterization and deft storytelling, Caroline Alexander shatters the centuries-old myths surrounding this story. She brilliantly shows how, in a desperate attempt to save one man from the gallows and another from ignominy, two powerful families came together and began to create the version of history we know today. The true story of the mutiny on the Bounty is an epic of duty and heroism, pride and power, and the assassination of a brave man’s honor at the dawn of the Romantic age.
