Book Description 1st.ed., 1929É Xi + 244 pp., port. frontis + 30 other photo-plates. Blue cloth ; gilt. 24 x 16cm. 1 plate loose o/w V.G. The early reminiscences of the Scottish-born author who travelled to Glasgow to sign on as an apprentice aboard the clipper ship WILD DEER loading for the long voyage to New Zealand. He went on to spend 14 years in Colonial square-riggers including the WILLIAM DAVIE, WELLINGTON, and OAMARU. On attaining the rank of second mate, he left Glasgow in a steamer bound for Rangoon to join his ship, but a change of company policy brought disappointment and he found himself serving as fourth officer in the AMARAPOORA in the Rangoon trade. Here he became involved in the Burmese War and he describes his experiences on the Irrawaddy River. He concludes his narrative with the end of his service in the Mercantile Marine under sail, as he returns to England to take up naval service with courses in gunnery and torpedo warfare at EXCELLENT and VERNON. THE LIFE OF A MERCANTILE MARINE OFFICER SERVING IN COLONIAL CLIPPERS DURING THE 19th CENTURY. Seller Inventory # C134B171
