SEA POWER IN ITS RELATION TO THE WAR OF 1812 - Mahan Captain A.T - 1905. 
London Sampson Low, Marston & Company, Limited 1905 - 2 volumes. First edition. Beautifully decorated with many illustrations, maps and battle diagrams. Large 8vo, publishers original ribbed navy-blue cloth lettered in gilt on the spines, t.e.g. ix, 423; 437, index pp. A very good and handsome set, bindings and textblocks clean, hinges strong and tight, just some mellowing to the cloth and light evidence of age but in all very well preserved. FIRST EDITION IN HANDSOME CONDITION. In this work, as well as through its predecessor entitled THE INFLUENCE OF SEA POWER UPON HISTORY, 1660-1783, Mahan demonstrates the considerable ties between naval warfare and the history of the modern world. He was one of the first historians ever to seriously examine this correlation. This treatise had a lasting influence upon American military thought, helping to convince our leaders that a strong navy was a necessity (as it subsequently proved to be, in two world wars).
