About this Item

767 pp. 644 pp. 8vo. Marryat (1792Ð1848), a onetime friend of Charles Dickens, was famous for his nautical stories and novels. He also, like Dickens, was a critical visitor to America. Here are collected 13 of his works in a single double-columned volume (actually two volumes bound together) with continuous pagination. These are his complete novels up through 1839. Included are the following novels: "Peter Simple " (1834) Jacob Faithful (1834), "The Pirate" (1836), "The Three Cutters" (1836), "Moonshine" (1836), "Japhet, in Search of a Father" (1836), "Mr. Midshipman Easy" (1836), "The Phantom Ship" (1839), "Frank Mildmay, or The Naval Officer" (1829), "The King's Own" (1830), "Newton Forster; or, The Merchant Service" (1832), "The Pacha of Many Tales" (1835), "Snarleyvow; or, The Dog Fiend" (1837). Marryat wrote much more up to his death in 1848. Inscription in ink in a very early 19th Century hand on front free flyleaf: "Presented to Ralph by his brother Morris on his 21st Birthday / M Moss." The title pages are missing from the rebound volume. The striking frontispiece with glassine protector is preserved. From the table of contents of Volume II (bound before Volume I, and identified by the footnotes for the signatures), this edition appears to be the first American edition of the Works of Captain Marryat, published in 1841 by Carey & Hart of Philadelphia. NUC identifies only 2 copies. NUC does not give enough information on the 1843 Exeter (NH) edition by J. & B. Williams (NM #0241540) to distinguish it. In 1857, R. Marsh of New York published the Complete Works of Captain F. Marryatt (NM #0241544) in a double column edition with the same running title, "Marryatt's Novels," but the table of contents is different from this volume. Discreet owner's stamp on rear free end paper. Lacks all title pages, including volume title page. Frontispiece and front free end paper reinforced with old transparent tape. Else, Very Good +. CBEL, III, 385Ð6. Sadleir I, 230Ð246. (both for first, separate editions). NUC, NM #0241539 (?). Modern red buckram with gilt titling on spine. Modern end papers with taping of hinges internally. All edges marbled (old; ? original). Bookseller Inventory # 9849
