Breverton’s Nautical Curiosities is about ships, people and the sea. However, unlike many other nautical compendiums, this lavishly illustrated book focuses on the unusual, the overlooked, or the downright extraordinary. Thus, someone most of us do not know, Admiral William Brown, is given equal coverage to Admiral Nelson. Without Admiral Brown releasing Garibaldi, modern Italy might not exist. And without the barely known genius John Ericsson designing the Monitor, the Confederacy might have won the American Civil War. Readers will be stimulated to read more about the remarkable men—explorers, admirals, and trawlermen—who have shaped our world.
