PREFACE


CARTOGRAPHIC AND MONOGRAPHIC publications relating to lost, buried, and sunken treasure are described in this booklet. The individual items are arranged in three groups: (a) cartographic works issued principally by private and commercial publishers, which locate, in a general way, real or alleged treasure sites; (b) officially published nautical and wreck charts which locate, by latitude and longitude coordinates, wrecks and other underwater obstructions; and (c) a selected group of books on treasure lore, most of which include map or chart illustrations.

Within each group, the separate items are listed alphabetically by author or publishing authority. The order of entry is as follows: title, area (in brackets), place of publication, publisher (if different from the authority heading), and date of publication or copyright. If the copyright claimant is a person or organization other than the publisher, this is noted in parentheses, following the copyright date. Additional descriptive data include scale, size (vertical dimension given first), and color (if other than black and white) presented in that order. When the form of reproduction is other than letter-press, this is noted (e.g., negative photostat, blue-line print, etc.). Maps with a high degree of ornamentation and illustration are designated as "pictorial" maps.

Below the description are given the Library of Congress classification number (on the left) and the card number (on the right), if a printed card is available. Printed cards are, in general, not available for treasure maps published after 1957.

Supplementary notes amplifying the descriptive information in the entry, include data on the number of treasure locations, on individuals, places, and vessels associated with particular treasure sites, and on depth of wrecks, estimates of value, and dates of sinkings, salvage, burial, or recovery.

It is emphasized that the maps and charts described in this list are not distributed or sold by the Library of Congress. Availability data, including the name and address of the publisher and the price (if known), are given for both maps and charts. Reproductions of items not protected by copyright may be ordered from the Photoduplication Service, Library of Congress, Washington, D.C., 20540. Cost estimates for reproducing specific maps and charts will be furnished on request. To reproduce copyrighted items, written permission must be obtained from the copyright claimants whose addresses are also given when available.

The alphabetical index provides an area approach to the maps, lists secondary authors and/or publishers, and includes a selection of miscellaneous names identified with buried or sunken treasure.

Standard nautical charts (not listed in this publication) that show wrecks hazardous to navigation, are published by the U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey, Department of Commerce, Washington, D.C. (covering U.S. coastal waters) and by the U.S. Naval Oceanographic Office, Washington, D.C. (for other than U.S. coastal waters). Indexes to these charts may be obtained upon request to the respective agencies.

The National Archives and Records Service has records relating to shipwrecks from about 1875 to 1940 and makes limited searches for documents concerning specific shipwrecks, provided the inquirer furnishes the name of the ship and the date and place of disaster. Inquiries about these records should be addressed to the attention of NCRD, The National Archives and Records Service, General Services Administration, Washington, D.C., 20408.

The U.S. Navy Department Library, Washington, D.C., has in its possession an undated, unpublished typewritten manuscript volume by Arnold S. Lott, entitled "Ship Losses of the U.S. Navy From 1775 through 1955," which may be consulted in that library.

The U.S. Bureau of Customs, Treasury Department, publishes annually a list entitled Merchant Vessels of the United States, which contains lists of "Vessels lost" and "Vessels abandoned" during the preceding year.

The stock of Principal Marine Disasters and U.S. Merchant Ship Losses, two lists formerly distributed by the U.S. Coast Guard, has become "permanently exhausted." Much of the basic information printed in the former can be found in almost any current world almanac under the index heading "Disasters". Data of the type published in the latter, which covered the period between December 7, 1941, and August 14, 1945, is available in more complete form in the annual publication of the Bureau of Customs mentioned above.

General thanks are due to my colleagues in the Map Division for their cooperation and assistance in various ways, and to my wife Margaret Call Ladd, of the National Geographic Society, who aided in preparing the index.

FOREWORD


THE DEDICATED CARTOPHILE finds treasure in all maps. To him they are delightful mirrors of the past and inviting gateways to romance and adventure. With the bard he sings:

I never see a map but I'm away
On all the errands that I long to do
Up all the rivers that are painted blue,
And all the ranges that are painted gray
And into those pale spaces where they say:
Unknown! Oh, what they never knew
I would be knowing-.

Those who seek more worldly riches may find on maps and charts the key to the location of lost, buried, and sunken treasures of an earlier day. With map in hand, they may pace off "37 yards in a line northwest of the towering oak" or, outfitted with mask, oxygen tank, and fins, they may glide beneath the clear blue water in search of the submerged galleon whose position is marked on the ancient chart.

The invention and perfection of new instruments and equipment and the development of improved methods and techniques for locating subterranean and submarine riches have, in recent years, aroused and stimulated new interest in treasure hunting. The hundreds of ships sunk during World War II offer additional incentives to those who seek to recover valuables from beneath the sea. Underwater exploration has also fostered archaeological and historical research by yielding artifacts from vessels that have for centuries rested at the bottom of the sea. To recover, identify, and preserve these historical objects a new discipline, submarine archaeology, has emerged and has attracted both amateur and professional enthusiasts.

Treasure hunters, whatever their motives, have sought information about pertinent maps and charts from the Map Division of the Library of Congress. Cartographers and map publishers have capitalized on the current interest by compiling and publishing maps purporting to locate sites of buried or submerged riches.

This bibliography, which describes a number of so-called treasure maps, has been compiled to assist in answering such reference inquiries. It revises and brings up to date an earlier bibliography, Treasure Maps in the Library of Congress, compiled by J. Douglas Hill and Richard S. Ladd, originally published in 1955, and reprinted in 1957. The maps and publications described in this list are all in the permanent collections of the Library of Congress, where they may be consulted. The Library does not sell or distribute treasure maps or charts. Items still in print should be ordered from the individual publisher, whose address is given following the description of the map. Reproductions of maps and charts that are not protected by copyright may be ordered from the Library's Photoduplication Service.

The Library of Congress assumes no responsibility, of course, for the accuracy or inaccuracy of the maps, and offers no guarantee that all who consult them will find tangible riches. If, however, you derive pleasure from maps, in the history they portray, in the memories they recall, and in the dreams, visions, and hopes they inspire, the maps and charts described here will yield treasures that enrich the mind, delight the heart, and elevate the spirit. Some few searchers may even find on one of the maps or charts the key to more material rewards. Happy hunting!
