Price: $25.00

Quantity: 1 available

Book Condition: iFine in VG Slipcase


Two pristine books nestled in a very nice clean, sturdy slipcase. Pages and page edges are pristine and there are no bumps or creases and no names. The only fault is a tiny dot on the lower spine of each book, a quirky thing that thie sale I bought it from does to each book it sells. The book is a memoir originally published in 1840 following a trip the author took in 1836 from California to Boston in a merchant ship. The title's "before the mast" is something of an enigma, but it simply means the area where the common sailors were quarttered -- before the mast. Books are beautifully illustrated, including some with subtle color (see photo) . 552 pages. Volume II shows photographs at the back of book.Altogether nice enough to be a gift.
