About this Item

First edition. Illustrated with a frontispiece and twelve plates in black and white. Tall 8vo, original blue cloth backed in black, the spine gilt lettered, in the original black paper-covered board slipcase. 77 pp. The text is very fine and is an unopened copy, the black cloth of the spine panel with a short and minor split at the foot and a little bumping, the slipcase with a bit of expected wear but still useful and attractive. FIRST EDITION. AN EXCELLENT COPY OF THIS RIVETING ACCOUNT, ONLY THE THIRD PUBLICATION OF THE RENOWN MARINE RESEARCH SOCIETY OF SALEM. Endicott was third-mate of the 'Glide', which struck a reef and wrecked on the Fijian Island Vanua Levu in 1831. There they lived among the native villagers for several months before being rescued by the whaler 'Braganza'. Endicott provides an exciting narrative of the voyage, wreck, and experiences with the natives. There is also a brief account on whaling, a short vocabulary of Fijian words and a list of the full crew of the Glide. Bookseller Inventory # 27435
