About this Item

New York, 1935. Octavo, light blue cloth, in a dust wrapper. 311 pages, illustrated by the author. Dust wrapper worn, with pieces missing from spine and for edge, but still intact. Endleaves lightly browned as usual, but still a very good copy. First Edition. This copy inscribed and signed by Van Loon, and with a small original ink drawing of a single man in a small sailing craft on the endleaf. ".It is not only a history of navigation from the tree trunks of the Australian aborigines to the modern ocean liner. It is the story of the way, frequently the inhuman way, in which sailors have lived and been treated during the last seven thousand years." (the Publisher). Bookseller Inventory # 6716
