WESTERN OCEAN PACKETS

Lubbock Basil

Boston: For Charles E. Lauriat Co. by James Brown & Son (Glasgow), 1925. First Edition, using the sheets of the English first edition and issued simultaneously. With 22 finely produced black and white plates on glossy paper. 8vo, publisher’s original maroon cloth lettered in gilt on the spine and ruled in blind on the upper cover, in the original printed tan paper dust-jacket, t.e.g. [xv],155 pp. A pristine copy, essentially as mint, rare thus. FIRST EDITION AND A SUPERB COPY. FROM THE GREAT AUTHORITY ON SAILING SHIPS. In the first part of this work the author gives us a brilliant treatise of the Atlantic Ferry lines of the first half of the 19th century. In party two he provides a more intimate study of specific voyages and lives onboard these voyages. It teems with romance as he tells us stories such as that of Captain Samuels and the 'Bloody Forty'. Like all of his books, it is the product of comprehensive and original research relayed in an enthusiastic and readable style.
