About this Item

Four tightly bound magazines, each measuring 5-1/2"x8-1/2" sporting the same blue cover design with ads at back cover. This is a hard one to find in these early issues and all four are completely intact save a small loss of paper at spines. A few spines show evidence of reglueing to paper, but only at crown and tail of two. Spine paper has darkened and there are a few small exterior stains, plus dampstain mark to edges of a couple pages on two issues. Otherwise textblock is very clean on all. The advertising is wonderful with illustration in some instances. Magazine was published for the merchant marine and addresses itself to issues concerning same such as meterology, Canadian shipping, Atlantic steam ferries, the Merchant Marine Act of 1876, the health of seaman, international regulations, preventing collisions at sea, the Arctic Expedition, ports of Sicily, and the standing of iron ships and errors of compasses, plus much more. The publication was founded in 1832 and run by its founder, a British admiral, until 1871. Bookseller Inventory # 20228HNC

Store Description

Garrison House Books has maintained an on-line presence since 1997. We are a general interest used, rare, and out-of-print bookstore based in the quaint Victorian town of Medina, Ohio. American history, children's books and ephemera (the history of the people) intrigue us most, but we buy and maintain books in all categories. We are Tess and Eric Kindig, married forever, and passionate about books, bookselling and readers. Tess has been a newspaper reporter, magazine writer, and public relations director, and is still a working author with 13 published books to her credit. Eric owns Log Cabin Inc. in Lodi, Ohio, an 8,000-plus square foot retail establishment specializing in historical books and reenactment accoutrements. In addition to his remarkable ability to schlep large piles of books from hither to yon, Eric brings over 30 years of retail experience to this endeavor! Also, joining our staff are our beloved bookshop kitties -- Miss Lil and Mickey. The former provides gentility and elan, and the latter (who is basically a street thug) provides comic relief. We believe that books are treasures, not commodities, and that readers are individuals, not numbers. Our greatest joy is in getting to know you and serving you with grace and good humor. We appreciate your business very much!
