About this Item

Small 4to. Black cloth. xx, 215pp. Frontispiece, numerous illustrations. Very good. Slightest bit of edgewear and bit of "flecking" to the cloth, but overall tight, clean and attractive. First edition, limited to 1,000 copies. Interesting association copy, for this belonged to the noted writer HAROLD BELL WRIGHT (1872-1944), one of the most popular novelists of the early 20th century, author of such bestsellers as "The Shepherd of the Hills" (1907), "The Calling of Dan Matthews" (1909) and "The Winning of Barbara Worth" (1911) -- whose descendants parted with much of HBW's personal library in December 2005. Wright was a serious long-time boating enthusiast, a fanatical follower of all things nautical whose hobby was designing and building from scratch his own sailboats. A rather uncommon title with an interesting provenance. Bookseller Inventory # 23896
