The true story of the Grosvenor. East Indiaman


The Grosvenor East Indiaman foundered on the coast of Pondoland in 1782.This book is a vivid reconstruction from first-hand evidence of the whole story of the Grosvenor from the laying down of her keel to the latest attempts to salvage the vast treasures with which the ship is popularly supposed to have been laden.The myths which have grown up round the stories of bullion and the Peacock Throne are examined and firmly disproved.
