About this Item

LAY, William and HUSSEY, Cyrus M. A Narrative of the Mutiny, on Board the Ship Globe, of Nantucket, in the Pacific Ocean, Jan. 1824 and the Journal of a Residence of Two Years on the Mulgrave Islands; with Observations on the Manners and Customs of the Inhabitants. New-London: Wm. Lay, and C.M. Hussey, 1828. 1st ed. 12mo. 168pp. Orig. tree calf, gilt-ruled spine, red morocco spine label. Some wear to spine ends and corners, spine splitting, inner hinges professionally repaired, light scattered foxing, else very good. HOWES L-158, "aa." Hill 990. Forbes Hawaii 697. An important firsthand narrative of one of the most infamous mutinies in American naval history, compiled by two of the few survivors of the event itself and its aftermath. The Globe was taken over near the Line Islands, four of the officers were murdered, and the remainder of the crew were forced by pain of death to join the mutineers. The crew then proceeded to the Marshall Islands and thence to the Mulgrave Islands, where the leader of the original mutiny was killed, and some of the party escaped to Valparaiso. Lay and Hussey remained on the Mulgrave Islands and were the sole survivors of an attack on their party by natives. They were eventually rescued by a war vessel sent in pursuit of the mutineers.
