The Wreck of the Deutschland, by S Street

The Wreck of the Deutschland
Sean Street

One of the worst shipping disasters to occur off the British coast and led to a public inquiry at the time. The Deutschland was a German emigrant ship enroute to USA when she ran aground on the Kentish Knock in the Thames estuary – far off her expected course. It was over 30 hours before a tug arrived to take off survivors. Rumours o pillaging abounded. The cry of a dying nun inspired Gerald Manly Hopkins to write a now famous poem – ‘The Wreck of the Deutschland’.

Hardback with dust jacket in very good condition. Scuff at top of inside front cover where something (a sticker?) appears to have been removed. Otherwise in excellent condition.
