Item Description: Judd, Loomis & Co., Hartford, 1836. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. The star here is the wonderful full leather binding with an American Eagle insignia. The book is quite common but the binding is why you would want to own this particular volume. At some point in the distant past I would say there was some professional attention paid to the front hinge. All very sound now. Interior has extravagant pride of ownership inscription probably from when book was new. In terms of defects: map is half gone; pages are foxed; some signatures are proud. Huntress 194C. This book feels great in your hand. Please see scans of the book you will receive. (Shipwreck literature). Bookseller Inventory # ABE-1487126441664

Item Description: Andrus & Judd,, Hartford:, 1818. Hardcover. Fifth Edition.. Very good+ in a rather primitive, more recent, full leather binding. A 16mo measuring 6 3/4" by 4 1/4" two small areas at the upper edges of the boards where the leather is scuffed. The preliminaries and up to page 21 show a water stain at the lower inside quarter. Without a dust jacket and probably as issued. 275 pages of text and illustrated with a fold-out map of Northern Africa which has suffered from very minor losses around the edges and water stain. Robbins was one of the seamen under the command of Captain Riley. According to Sabin, this title was originally published in 1817 and contained only 258 pages plus the map. It was published in the same year that the more famous book by James Riley (the captain of the ill fated vessel, published his account of the tragedy. Again, as per Sabin, this copy of Archibald's work constitutes the fifth edition. (Sabin, 71738). Bookseller Inventory # TB27847

James Riley, master, upon the western coast of Africa, August 28th, 1815; : also of th e slavery and sufferings of the author and the rest of the crew, upon the desert of Zahara, in the years 1815, 1816, 1817; with accounts of the manners, customs, and habits of the wandering Arabs; also, a brief historical and geographical view of th e continent of Africa, by Archibald Robbins. ; "[Archibald Robbins] was born in Wethersfield, Connecticut, was a mariner, [and was] captured in the war of 1812, and [then] detained 18 months at Halifax, as a prisoner of war; in May, 1815, he sailed with Capt. James Riley in the brig Commerce and was wrecked on the coast of Africa, where he was captured by the Arabs and held 19 months as a slave, and until redeemed by the English consul at Mogadore"-- from American Biographical Notes by Franklin Benjamin Hough, 1875. ; "his sufferings are familiar to the readers of Riley's Narrative ; after some years service at sea, he settled in his native village, where he was post master; in 1836, he removed to Solon, 0hio, became the first post master there, and died Dec. 27, 1859, at age 67. ; from the preface: "The narrative of my highly respected friend, Capt. James Riley, is already before the public. It has excited that interest which the history of human sufferings is calculated to produce among a humane people. For two months he was a captive among a race of beings, whose ' tender mercies are cruelties.' During that period, I, together with the rest of his unfortunate crew, was likewise a sufferer. At the end of this time, he was released from a cruel bondage, and was restored to his native country and anxious friends. A more cruel fate attended me. I was still detained as a captive among the wandering Arabs; and was compelled, for nineteen months, to endure as much as human nature can bear and yet survive. I have, however, abundant reason to rejoice that I am now among my friends, while the fate of some of this wretched crew is still unknown. The following journal shall be a faithful and accurate detail of all the know ledge I possess of this ill-fated crew." ; page 275 missing (text supplied on sheet, laid in) ; repairs to covers ; FAIR.
