Two Years Before the Mast; or, A Voice from the Forecastle: Being a Sailor's Life at Sea (1840)
London: J. Cunningham, 1841. Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First British Edition. First English Edition. 156 pp printed in double columns. Mid-C20th binding in dark brown leather over pale blue marbled boards; raised bands and red leather title label on spine. Title page a little darkened, otherwise very good. Dana's account of his time at sea, and the poor conditions that sailors suffered, first appeared in America in 1840; there were two (pirated) English editions in 1841 by Cunningham and Moxon. It is unclear which has precedence. THis item will require additional postage cost for signed/tracked services..
