To readers who supported the four published editions of 'Australian Shipwrecks', and requested an update, the author has done this for you, and with that presents the last volume of 'Australia Shipwrecks'.
Details of more than 1000 additional casualties have been summarized here, covering the whole period of the series (1622-1990) and the opportunity has also been undertaken to include illustrations and photographs excluded from earlier volumes by pressure of space.
As with the previous volumes, this one lists the wrecks chronologically, and includes many photographs and maps, a bibliography and an index.
