Mixed lot of 2 books about "wracking" (shipwreck salvage) in the south of England. Stories of salvaging (and sometimes even causing) shipwrecks are the stuff of legend in the south of England, and these are perhaps the best two books to read about it: Back of the Wight, by Fred Mew (1990 12th impression, SC, VF), and The Wreckers, by Bella Bathurst (2005, HB/DJ, mint). Pedigreed to the Tom Sebring Treasure Library.
