About this title


This is the fascinating story of the exploration of the historic Jamaican port, Port Royal- in the 17th century, the home port of buccaneers. Today, Port Royal is a city of legends, legends of the 1692 earthquake and tidal wave that caused the city to sink beneath the sea, and legends of fortunes that may be buried there. Robert F. Marx, a marine archaeologist, undertook a two-and-a-half year exploration of the port. His expedition discovered thousands of perfectly preserved artifacts of life in the 17th century. Here is the story of that expedition, its trials, dangers, opposition to overcome, and the discoveries. 304 pages inc. index. 8.5 x 5.75 inches. Doubleday, New York, 1973.

Store Description

Rare Reads formerly operated a storefront in The Lakewood Antiques Gallery in Atlanta, Georgia but reverted to a strictly online operation when the Gallery closed. In 2006, Rare Reads published "The Heeey Baby Days of Beach Music" which received a bronze medal from The Independent Publishers Association. Long sold out, copies of the 13 pound tribute to the musicians who created the unique R&B genre are occasionally available on ABE. The book was a collaborative effort of Rare Reads and many others including the musicians that created the sound Southerns term "Beach Music." Rare Reads is considering future publications in addition to expanding its online enterprise. Rare Reads is operated by Greg Haynes and son Reid Haynes and has warehouses in Atlanta and Athens, Georgia.
