The Treasure Diver's Guide by John S. Potter, Jr. This book has started many treasure hunts! It begins by discussing the Spanish galleons carrying gold and silver from the New World to Spain, tells the stories of wrecks already salvaged (as of 1960), discusses wreck identification, and overviews underwater archaeology. However, most of the book comprises the first comprehensive listing of treasure wrecks (but over the past 40 years some of the data has been shown to be erroneous).
