The Seaman's Friend : Containing a Treatise: R. H. Dana,

Item Description: Thomas Groom & Co., Boston, 1854. Cloth. Book Condition: Fair. Seventh Edition ~ Revised and Corrected. 7.8 x 5 inches. 225 pages plus four pages of Groom ads at rear. A pleasing example of this working copy of the young Robert C. Adams in his first year of seamanship. Signed and dated by him on front endpaper November 1855, on the ship Ringleader {one of the Glidden & Williams Line}. Adams, the son of Rev. Nehemiah Adams of Boston, was too ill to study preaching so at age 15 took to the sea and would become "commander of some of the finest merchant vessels in the American marine service" [Blue Grass Blade issue]. Adams was also later known as a published and vocal proponent for Freethought, and served as Head of the Montreal Freethought Club and President of the Canadian Secular Union. He published many articles; his books included: "Travels in Faith" and the East Indian seafaring novel "On Board The Rocket". A point-form list of accomplishments in an old hand is laid in to the volume: "Robert C. Adams / Sea Captain / Mining Speculator / Sup'd Cross Mission Sabbath School / Head of Freethought Club in Montreal / Born in Boston / Lived in Montreal / Died in Boston / Father was a Congregational Minister / Taught a Sunday School Class in Zion Church." Brown cloth with gilt titles and ship design to front. Spine panel chipped at head and foot and split along rear gutter midway down. Binding and hinges are fully secure with no wobble. Original endpapers present and secure. Marginal chipping to a few pages not affecting text. Plates ii and iii are missing; the other three plates and all pages are present and securely bound.

Item Description: Boston, Charles C. Little & James Brown. New York : Mark H. Newman, and E. & G. W. Blunt. Philadelphia : Carey & Hart. 4th ed., 1845. 223 pp., 4 engrvd. plates. Original brown blind-decorated cloth; gilt. 20 x 13cm. Neatly re-backed with original spine laid down ; V.G. Contemporary full-page green paper advertisement pasted in at front showing that this book was purchased from John Kehew at his Navigation Store, 69 North Water Street, New Bedford (which also sold navigational instruments, charts, etc., listed here in some detail). Head of advert engraved with compass rose, sextant and woodcuts of 3 sailing ships. Richard Henry Dana (1815-1882), was educated at Harvard but shipped as a common sailor on a voyage round Cape Horn resulting in his classic piece of sea literature, Two Years Before the Mast published in 1840. This success was followed a year later by this treatise (published in England under the title of A Seaman's Manual) on practical seamanship ; dictionary of sea terms, customs and usages of the Merchant Service ; laws relating to the practical duties of masters and mariners ; and other topics including seamen's wages, passengers, mates and subordinates, etc. It was first published in 1841 - appearing in both America and England at the same time - and was extremely popular with both American and British sailors aboard square-riggers for much of the second half of the 19th century - designed to be carried in their pockets. This is the early 4th American edition of 1845 published in Boston. The four engraved plates show (1) The Spars and Rigging of a Ship. (2) A Ship's Sails. (3) The Frame of a Ship. (4) Seven different Rigs. This copy is further enhanced by the original retailer's advertisement from a Navigation Store in New Bedford. Bookseller Inventory # C143B048
