Editions: The first edition (not stated) was published by G.P. Putnam's Sons, New York City (1934) in hardback with a dust jacket.
Description: This book is a history of Florida, with many interesting stories and some glaring errors.
I believe this book is the first modern reference to the sinking of the 1715 Fleet, which the author incorrectly places off Key Largo (perhaps he was confused with the 1733 Fleet). There are also several other treasure references, including one to a Spanish galleon named "Santa Margarita" lost between Palm Beach and Jupiter, Florida.

There was a second printing that is identical to the first edition, except there is no colophon over the copyright date. There was also a third, fourth and fifth printing (and perhaps more) of the book in 1930, and these can be identified by their smaller size and the fact there is no paste down label on the cover and spine. All of these hardback printings had dust jackets. The first UK edition was published by Chapman & Hall, Ltd., London (1931), in hardback with a dust jacket. Reader's Digest published a condensed hardback edition in 1944. A paperback edition was published by Pennant Books, New York City (1954).
Description: This book tells the story of 10 famous lost treasures, including 3 about sunken ships.  There are chapters about the "Florencia" (one of the Spanish Armada galleons that sank in 1588 in Tobermory Bay off Scotland), the "Lutine" (which sank off Holland in 1799) and the Spanish galleons sunk in Vigo Bay, Spain, in 1702.  One of the "Top 75 Books".

Description:  Before there were coins in the New World, before there were Spanish Treasure Fleets, and even before there were any kind of European colonies in Mexico, the conquistador, Hernan Cortés, discovered a new precious-metal mix that led to an improvised manufacture of so-called "tumbaga" bars.  The "tumbaga" bars are a group of over 200 silver and gold ingots discovered in the remains of an unidentified ca.-1528 shipwreck off Grand Bahama Island in 1993.  This book is divided into three parts: The first part chronicles the earliest documents relating to the treasure accumulated by Hernan Cortés during his conquest of the Aztec empire. The second part concerns the later phase of conquest, specifically Captain Cristóbal de Olid’s campaign in the region of the Tarascan kingdom in western Mexico. The third and final part discusses technical aspects of these bars based on an interpretation of their markings and manufacture.The specimens studied in this book are the only ones known to exist—all of them from the same wreck—and therefore they will always be of the utmost rarity and historical importance. The book contains a data matrix for all 194 bars, including their weights, measurements, markings and descriptions. Also featured are plates of 60 selected bars, maps, native drawings and charts.

The Last Cruise of H.M.S. "Loo"
Category: Underwater Archaeology
Keywords: Looe, Jane and Barney Crile
Comments: Pamphlet; includes a bibliography; illustrated
Size: 6" x 9.25"
Pages: 55 + 17 plates
Editions: The first edition (not stated) of this pamphlet was published by the Smithsonian Institution, Washington DC (Publication # 4224) in 1955. I believe the true first edition has a tan cover. There is also a slightly smaller version of the pamphlet with a blue cover and identical contents...but I suspect this is a reprint. This pamphlet is now available as a "print-on-demand" paperback book.
Description: This pamphlet tells the story of the author's trip to the Florida Keys with Barney Crile (see Crile, Jane and Barney, "Treasure Diving Holidays"; #C-2480) to excavate the "HMS Looe", which sank in 1743. Subsequent research has shown that Peterson and Crile had the wrong “Looe”. The ship they excavated was sunk as a breakwater in Sheeringham, UK, in 1737.
