      In a foreword "To Treasure Hunters," the author states: "All in all,
      I have investigated some 42,000 locations all over the Western
      Hemisphere that are said to have treasure in one or another form. Of
      these I have been able to authenticate about 3500, most of which are
      indicated in this volume." A "List of Maps" following the foreword
      contains the titles which are given below; amplification concerning
      areas and total number with inclusive dates of locations have been
      added. Locations in the list in the atlas are keyed by numbers to
      positions on the maps. List includes names associated with sunken
      ships or treasure, weight, depth, estimates of value, coordinates of
      latitude and longitude, and dates. Soundings appear on many of the
