About this Item

Book is very clean and tightly bound with no tears or chips to jacket which has been price-clipped, but retains its crispness. It will arrive in brand new mylar cover to keep it so. Only faults to book itself are a tiny crease to upper front corner and toning to front endpapers and to blank pages behind front endpaper from newspaper review of book which is laid-in. Former owner's older bookplate affixed to front pastedown as well. Author flat SIGNED book on title page. An account of the early 19th century merchant ships which were built in Connecticut and set sail from New York -- and of the Connecticut travelers who boarded them for adventures to both the Far West and the Far East. Based on a treasure trove of family papers found in the attic of the author's grandparents' home in Middle Haddam, Connecticut which covered the period from 1813 through the time of the nefarious "Hartford Convention" to the California Gold Rush in 1854. 96 very accessible pages. Limited illustration confined to middle of book. Bookseller Inventory # 20268HNC

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!
