Book Condition: Good
Edition: First Edition.
Boston, 1857. Oblong quarto, morocco backed pictorial boards. Illustrated with twenty four lithographs. The story of a man who, upon inheriting a fortune, takes up yachting. An exceedingly scarce title. The Club of Odd Volumes reprint identifies the artist as Charles Ellery Stedman. Eric Rudd, in an article published in 1974, suggests that the lithographs may have been done by Winslow Homer, though others have disputed that claim. This copy with some amateur hand coloring to the cover and the first three and final lithograph. Some marks to versos, ownership marks on preliminary page. Contents otherwise excellent. Boards are still attached, though the binding has chipped in sections. Quite good overall despite the flaws. Please contact us for additional pictures or information. OCLC 8785099, locating seven copies, all at major institutions. Please contact us for additional pictures or information. Bookseller Inventory # SP409XX
