Default Soon English edition of "Galleons with Treasure"

Greetings to the community of Friendly MDF.
I am a specialist in historical research on Spanish and Portuguese galleons whose common denominator is to carry out treasures.
In 2007 I published, in Spanish, the book Galeones con tesoros (Galleons with treasure) and this year, in Italian. Now I announce with pleasure that the English edition of my book is almost ready.
Galleons with treasure tells several stories, all from original documents drawn from historical archives in a number of "golden" shipwrecks in several places in the world like the Bahamas, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Honduras, Jamaica, Mexico, Philippines, Portugal, Spain and Uruguay.
Thanks for your support, which certainly will not be disappointed.
I am available for further information.
Have a good diving
Claudio

Default Sounds great!

Grazie Mille!
Sounds like a good reference book! I can already imagine myself on the beaches of Jamaica, Rum drink in one hand, detector in the other, and sand scoop in the third hand

Hello Vox,
Glad to know that you publish these books. I will surely get the english version.
Maybe you can help me identify a ring that I found in the waters of Punta Cana (DR). I think it's quite old. There is a picture of the ring on this site on the forum
( Help to ID my Finds ) under the title ( Strange Ring ) posted on the 04-15-2010. Really would apreciate. Thank You!
