162 HARRIS, R.V. Oak Island Mystery. Second Edition, Fourth Printing, in dustjacket.
Ryerson Press, Toronto, 1973, ISBN:0770001351 
HARRIS, R.V. The Oak Island Mystery. Toronto : The Ryerson Press, (1973). Second Edition, Fourth Printing. Pp (9),x-xi,(1),1-209,(3), frontispiece + 10 pages of photos. 8vo, grey mottled boards, gilt lettering to spine. With bibliography and index. "Since 1795, when a Nova Scotia farmboy chanced upon what he suspected was the location of buried pirate treasure, fortune hunters from all over the world have risked their lives and savings in attempts to recover whatever may be buried on this small island on Mahone Bay. Andyet, to this day, all attempts have been futile. Dozens of shafts and tunn els have been dug, sophisticated drilling and pumping equipment has been specially designed and put into use, large and successful construction and mining companies have subsidized one expedition after another. But strangely enough, the mystery of Oak Island continues to defy experts and amateurs alike. What is buried beneath Oak Island? Captain Kidd's bounty? The Holy Grail? Inca Gold? The treasures of the lost civilization of Atlantis? Nobody knows.... yet. In 1958, when Reginald Harris completed the first edition of 'The Oak Island Mystery', he had no idea of the impact the book would have on this 170-year treasure hunt. With the revision of the bok in 1967, Harris became the focal point of interest in the subject. The latest attempt at solving the mystery, headed by Daniel Blankenship and financed by a new syndicate, had just gotten under way and is the last expedition described in this book." -from the dustjacket.
