Book Description John C. Winston, Philadelphia, 1933. Condition: Fine. Octavo, 115 photographs and 16 wood engravings in text; original pictorial cloth. The experiences of Gifford "Giff" Bryce Pinchot and his school chum Stephen "Stiff" Stahlnecker, as they embarked upon a cruise across the Pacific in the Mary Pinchot, a three-masted schooner bought and outfitted by Giff's father in 1929. Adopting a Tom Sawyer-esque tone, Giff leads us through all the intricacies of the journey from preparation at the Brooklyn Naval Base to completion in the Society Islands: from being placed in charge of the ship's armoury (at the tender age of thirteen!) to chagrin at discovering the cook's ill-considered decision to dispense with a crate of codfish balls by throwing them overboard to make room for more canned goods. The journey was intended to make many scientific discoveries and to this end engaged the services of a scientist - the redoubtable Professor Pilsbry whose shell-collecting unearthed 23 new species and an entirely new genus of shelled creatures - and a photographer armed with eight miles of film and an extravagant underwater camera.The volume is immensely readable, Giff's wide-eyed prose ringing like a latter-day Jim Hawkins, and the text is extensively supported by an abundance of photographs and sympathetic line drawings. This is the first edition of a book which epitomises the "Boy's Own Adventure". Seller Inventory # 2906412
