Description:

The Spanish ironclad Numancia was an armored frigate bought from France during the 1860s. Numancia had a rich history record, being in action at the war with Peru & Chile (the Chincha war) and the Spanish-American war.

In 1866, when Spain retreated from Peru and Chile in the Chincha war, Numancia returned home via the Pacific, hereby being the first ironclad in the world to circumnavigate the earth.

Numancia was decommisioned in 1912 and sold to the breakers. Three attemps were made to tow the ship from Cadiz to Bilbao. On the third attempt, on December 17th, 1916, the tugs and Numancia encountered a storm.

The tugs went for shelter at Setubal, leaving the Numancia at anchor at Sesimbra, Portugal. During the storm, Numancia was grounded at Sesimbra beach. The crew was saved, but she was declared a total loss and abandoned.

She was partially salvaged in situ. There are some remains at a depth of 5-6 metres.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
