Shipwrecks of Delmarva

An incredibly detailed map depicting the locations of shipwrecks around this peninsula on the east coast of the US. Although much of the map is taken up by the listing of ships it is clearly presented and interspersed with some interesting illustrations making it a most informative and fascinating product.
