Volume III 2012

The third annual edition of The Nautilus (Spring 2012) contains a timely cultural history of the Titanic in the one-hundredth year after the ship’s sinking, assessing the influence the ship and its loss have had on our consciousness and art. The edition also contains the 1815-1816 journal of young Sam Coverly, Jr., as he took his first voyage as a merchant in the China trade from the port of Boston aboard the ship Alert. Also in this edition are reviews of maritime books addressing naval history in times of war, the rise of the surfer girl, the wreck of a British convict ship, service on a clipper ship in the age of sail, navigation in the seventeenth century, a poetic examination of the port of Gloucester, Massachusetts, and the continuing influence of Moby-Dick.
