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
