Illustrated. Map. 8vo, green clo th, black lettering to spine. “In picturing the life and times of the trade, the history of the little brigantine Hope, Captain Joseph Ingraham, of Boston, has been closely followed. The original of this interesting record isin the Library of Congress at Washington, D.C., while a photostat copy is in the Provincial Archives at Victoria, British Columbia. While the youthful characters have been, of course, devised to add interest and preserve continuity, and one or two events, such as their captivity among the Indians, were necessary to avoid the tedium of a trip to and from the Orient, the main incidents will bear comparison with the unvarnished tale as set down by the old mariner with his quill pen in the cabin of the Hope.” - from the Foreword. Spine sunned to brown, covers damp-faded, hinges shaky, gift inscription, else good. As is. 20.00
