Also, a Detailed Account of A Voyage Around the World, attended with Unusual Suffering." Decorated brown cloth cover. 8vo. In New York in 1852 the author saw an advertisement for a 'Yacht excursion to Australia', and signed himself and six companions up. Many of the bunks had been sold twice over, the supply of food was insufficient, and the crew unruly enough to attempt to throw the captain overboard during a gale, but after stops in South America they did make it to Australia's gold camps, as well as northern California. Spine ends chipped, corners well rubbed, gilt on cover and spine mostly rubbed off, poorly erased penciling on endpaper, foxing, dampstain to final ten pages and bottom edge, o/w good. 358pp. Steel plate engravings. > Language: English | > Size: 8vo | > Media/Binding: Hardcover |.
