   schema:description ""Within a few years the Mary Celeste became the stuff of legend, the true facts obscured by fictional details, most attributable to an early short story by Arthur Conan Doyle. This book returns to the facts. Accompanied by photos of the people involved and maps of the area, this is an investigation of an enduring mystery and features the historical background of the ship, the histories of the cast of characters, the theories and the story to date, including the recent discovery of the wreckage." "Other famous stories are told, including tales of ghost ships such as the Flying Dutchman and sea monsters and giant squid. The book also features the full text of Arthur Conan Doyle's short story and the transcript of the Gibralter proceedings."--Jacket."@en ;
