This vintage book is a gripping historical account of the famous French ship "Magellan" and her crew, detailing their various adventures across the ocean and the tragic incident that saw their demise. Profusely illustrated and masterfully written, this volume would make for a fantastic addition to any collection, and constitutes a must-have for fans of historical literature of this ilk. Contents Include: "The Barque 'Magellan'", "Samo The Biligou Bird", and "Epilogue". Many old books like this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on sailing.
