GOSNELL, Harpur Allen. Before the Mast in the Clippers : Composed in Large Part of the Diaries of Charles A. Abbey kept while at Sea in the Years 1856to 1860. New York : Derrydale Press, (1937). Pp 283, frontispiece, [20] le aves plates and charts (some folding). 8vo, red spine with brown boards. Number 180 of an edition limited to 950 copies. Siegel, et al., The DerrydalePress : A Bibliography 111. Journal entries recounting the experiences of an American merchant seaman during the heyday of merchant sail. While his style is appropriately spare, he manages to convey a clear sense of the quotidian life of the seaman- the seasickness, the terror of work aloft, the comfortably monotony off watch, officers both brutal and kind- on voyages around the Cape to India and around the Horn to California. Faint rubbing to spine ends and front corners, a few light spots of soiling to edges, else very good. 350.00
