About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for REDBURN: HIS FIRST VOYAGE. Being the Sailor-boy Confessions and Reminiscences of the Son-of-a-Gentleman, in the Merchant Service by Melville Herman.

Description:

First edition. A copy with both sets of the ads. 8vo, publisher’s original purple blind-stamped cloth with gilt lettering on spine. Now housed in a fine three-quarter blue morocco drop-over clamshell case, decorated with raised bands separating compartments with gilt designs and gilt lettering. xi, 390 pp. + [advertisements [i-iv], 1-11, 14, 1-2]. A very handsome, very pleasing, tight copy, beautifully preserved with little of the inevitable foxing. The spine panel, as would be expected, is mellowed down from the original purple, some offsetting to the yellow end-leaves as normal. RARE FIRST EDITION OF THIS FINE WORK. Melville's novel, based on his own experiences as a boy from a poverty stricken New York family who ships out to sea on his first voyage bound for Liverpool. In 1837 Melville left his impoverished New York family on a similar voyage. It was the young boy's first taste of life on the ocean and an experience that would instill a lifelong love of the sea. That love was so profound that it is seen throughout virtually all of his writings. Prior to setting off to sea Melville had been employed at a hat shop. And if his voyage to Liverpool can be viewed as the beginning of his literary career, American literature owes an extraordinary amount to the experience Melville had on that raw morning down on the merchant docks of New York City.
