About this Item

Two pristine books nestled in a very nice clean, sturdy slipcase. Pages and page edges are pristine and there are no bumps or creases and no names. The only fault is a tiny dot on the lower spine of each book, a quirky thing that thie sale I bought it from does to each book it sells. The book is a memoir originally published in 1840 following a trip the author took in 1836 from California to Boston in a merchant ship. The title's "before the mast" is something of an enigma, but it simply means the area where the common sailors were quarttered -- before the mast. Books are beautifully illustrated, including some with subtle color (see photo) . 552 pages. Volume II shows photographs at the back of book.Altogether nice enough to be a gift.

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!
