Overview

We are pleased to have rediscovered and republished this great work on sea monsters and unexplained creatures that have attacked many ships at sea.

It was written and based on extensive research by Henry Lee, who searched hundreds of documented accounts that may no longer exist today. Luckily for us, Lee was also able to get his hands on original newspaper illustrations of the monsters, which make up a fine collection of rare illustrations.

Here is how Lee explained the procurement of illustrations in his own words:

"It is a pleasure to me to acknowledge gratefully the kindness I have met with in connection with the illustrations of this book. The proprietors of the Illustrated London News not only gave me permission to copy, in reduced size, their two pictures of the Dædalus incident, but presented to me electrotype copies of all others small enough for these pages—namely, "Jonah and the Monster," Egede's "Sea-Serpent," and the Whale as seen from the Pauline. Equally kind have been the proprietors of the Field. To them I am greatly indebted for their permission to copy the beautiful woodcuts of the "Octopus at Rest," "The Sepia seizing its Prey," and the arms of the Newfoundland squids, and also for "electros" of the two curious Japanese engravings, all of which originally appeared in their paper. From the Graphic I have had similar permission to copy any cuts that might be thought suitable, and the illustrations of the sea-serpent, as seen from Her Majesty's yacht Osborne and the City of Baltimore, are from that journal. Messrs. Nisbet most courteously allowed me to have a copy of the block of the Enaliosaurus swimming, which was one of the numerous pictures in Mr. Gosse's book, published by them, already referred to. And last, not least, I have to thank Miss Ellen Woodward, daughter of my friend, Dr. Henry Woodward, F.R.S., for enabling me to better explain the movements and appearances of the squids when swimming, and when raising their bodies out of water in an erect position, by carefully drawing them from my rough sketches."

We hope you enjoy this book as much as we did discovering it and bringing it to you.

    Incredible find!

    This book is about a century old, but it is compilation of all the documented and credible cases of sea monster encounters based on the author's research. Really loved it!
