Book Description ReInk Books, 2017. SoftCover. Book Condition: New. Reprinted from 1817 edition. NO changes have been made to the original text. This is NOT a retyped or an ocr'd reprint. Illustrations, Index, if any, are included in black and white. Each page is checked manually before printing. As this reprint is from very old book, there could be some missing or flawed pages, but we always try to make the book as complete as possible. Fold-outs, if any, are not part of the book. If the original book was published in multiple volumes then this reprint is of only one volume, not the whole set. This paperback book is SEWN, where the book block is actually sewn (smythe sewn/section sewn) with thread before binding which results in a more durable type of paperback binding. It can also be open wide. The pages will not fall out and will be around for a lot longer than normal paperbacks. This print on demand book is printed on high quality acid-free paper.

Book Description London: John Murray, 1817. 4to., large folding engraved map (of Africa), short closed tear, no loss and now neatly repaired, xvi + 618 + (2)pp., including the final advertisement leaf, old, perhaps original, boards, neatly rebacked and labelled, entirely uncut. An excellent, large, copy sometime in the library of The Cruising Association> (label on pastedown, small blindstamp on margin of title-page, gilt stamp on cover). First English edition (published the same year as the Hartford 1st.). 'James Riley was a native of Middletown, Connecticut. Brought up a farmer, he became a sailor and learned enough to become first a mate and then a master of vessels. On May 6, 1815, he set sail in the Commerce,> 220 tons, from the Connecticut River for New Orleans. That voyage completed, he loaded tobacco and flour for Gibraltar, where he arrived on August 9, 1815. There he loaded brandy and wine, and decided to complete his cargo with salt from the Cape Verde Islands. On this last voyage Riley failed to make enough allowance for currents - the common cause for shipwreck on the coast of Morocco - and the Commerce> struck near Cape Bojador on August 28, 1815. The whole crew reached shore with the longboat, but Arabs attacked them and forced them back to the wreck. They repaired the boat and set off in it to the south, but were forced to land again because of thirst and starvation. After this second landing, near Cape Barba, they were captured and enslaved by Arabs. Riley and a few others of his crew were sold from master to master until he became the property of one Sidi Hamet, who undertook to send him to Mogadore where he could be ransomed. After many adventures and much suffering Riley reached Mogadore in October, 1815, and was ransomed with his fellows by William Willshire, the British Consul there, for $1,852.45. Riley reached New York on March 20, 1816. Other crew members, including Archibald Robbins, were later ransomed, but four of Riley's crew were still slaves when the book was published.'

Book Description London, John Murray, 1817.4to. Later half calf, spine lettered in gold. With folding map (mounted on linen). XVI,618 pp.First English edition. - The Commerce struck near Cape Bojador on August 28, 1815. The whole crew reached shore but the Arabs forced them back to the wreck. They repaired the boat and after their second landing near Cape Barba, they were captured and enslaved by Arabs. After many adventures Riley was ransomed by the British consul in Mogadore. This was one of the most popular books of the 19th century in the United States, probably because of interest in the Arab countries developed in the wars with the Barbary States, and because of its interesting reverse view of slavery - Moors were considered Blacks, and in this narrative they were the owners of white Americans. - Good copy.Huntress 190C; Sabin 71398; Hess & Coger 5681; Playfair & Brown 514: fairly circumstantial.
