Well that title pretty much sums it up.  Not really "weird" by today's standards but instead mostly accounts of ship disasters (including the infamous Medusa) that appear pretty factual though there are no sources despite apparently being drawn from primary sources (though I wouldn't trust that to be the actual case at all).
