WILLIS, N. Parker. Summer Cruise in the Mediterranean, on Board an AmericanFrigate. Auburn: Alden, Beardsley & Company, Rochester: Wanzer, Beardsley & Company, 1853. Pp. [i]-xv,(2),16-396. 9vo, rebound in blue cloth spine with gray paper-covered boards. "Of one of the most delicious episodes in a long period of foreign travel, this volume is the imperfect and hastily written transcript. Even at the time it was written, the author felt its experience to be a dream - so exempt was it from the interrupting and qualifying drawbacks of happiness in common and working life - but now, after an interval of many years, it seems indeed like a dream, and one so full of unmingled pleasure, that its telling almost wants the contrast of sadness. Of the noble ship, whose summer cruise is described, and her kind and hospitable officers, the recollection is as fresh and grateful, now, as when, (twenty years ago,) the author bade them farewell in the port of Smyrna." -from the preface. Light foxing, small piece missing from top right corner of first three pages, else vg. 50.00
