Product Description

The First and Last Voyage of the Batavia

by Philippe Godard.

This is a beautifully produced full-colour hardcover book detailing the loss and subsequent massacre of 'survivors' of the Dutch ship in the Abrolhos islands off the Western Australian Coast in 1629. The underwater photographs are particularly interesting, as the book covers the post discovery period, and raising of materials. The tragic history of the ship and its occupants is covered in detail, with descriptive drawings provided where photographs were not available. The discovery of the Batavia is fascinating. A marvellous book for anyone interested in the underwater world, and in Australian history in particular.
