Very rare book first published in 1885, now digitized by Google, Legends and Superstitions of the Sea and of Sailors in All Lands and at All Times was written by Fletcher S. Bassett, Lieutenant of U.S. Navy. It is culturally important as it sheds the light on many almost loss myths and stories related to the sailing.

The characters involved include the Gods, Saints and Demons of the sea, wind-makers and storm-raisers, sea monsters and sea serpents, sea-giants and dwarfs, storm-raising deeds, and many others. It also tells the reader about sacrifices, offerings and oblations, ceremonies and festivals, as well as famous sea voyages.
