About this Item: The Century Co, New York, 1905. First edition, early printing of "the finest single-handed adventure story yet written" (Seafarer). Octavo, original blue cloth. Pictorially stamped in silver and green, top edge gilt, frontispiece of The Spray. Inscribed by author on the front free endpaper, "To Ira E. Lute Joshua Slocum Sloof Spray Camden NJ May 23, 1906." In fine condition. Illustrated by Thomas Fogarty and George Varian. An exceptional signed example. Sailing Alone Around the World was published by Century Company in 1900. The sailing memoir records Slocum's amusing experience as the first person to sail around the world alone. National Fisherman called it "[a] literary gem, adroitly and engagingly written," but interest extends beyond mere sea-aficionados. Excitement for the voyage was universal, and Slocum was awaited by admirers at his ports. To these he gave popular lectures and lantern-slide shows upon his arrival, including the English writers Edwin Arnold and Arthur Ransome. The memoir was first published in installments before its popularity became such that it was issued in lavishly illustrated book form. Slocum conveys an appreciably casual, almost self-deprecating, style. Contemporary reviews speak as well of it even now as "one of the most readable books in the whole library of adventure" (Sports Illustrated). "There is so much to this book that it is not surprising that it is has been continually in print since 1889.this book has literary merit, thoughtful and beautifully written and packed with incident" (Nautical Magazine).

About this Item: New York: The Century Co., 1901, 1901. Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles and decoration to spine and front board in silver and green, top edge gilt, others uncut. Spine rolled, marginal mark to final few pages; an excellent, bright copy. Half-tone frontispiece and 64 illustrations. Second edition, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper: "Yours very truly, Joshua Slocum, at Marblehead, July 30 1905". Marblehead is home to numerous yacht clubs, and held a regatta for a fleet of yachts which arrived on 30 July 1905 having travelled from Boston. This superb narrative of the first single-handed circumnavigation of the globe aboard the Spray "has been compared favourably to Thoreau's Walden. Slocum perceived his world in a poetic manner and described his vision of reality with grace" (Toy). Morris & Howland, p. 126 *; Toy 462. Seller Inventory # 117356
