11 Dana, R.H. Richard Henry. The Seaman's Friend....

Boston: Charles C. Little & James Brown, and James Loring & Co.; New York: Dayton & Saxton, and E. & G.W. Blunt; Philadelphia: Carey & Hart, (1841). First edition (BAL 4435). Original full leather, leather spine label lettered in gilt, spine ruled in gilt, illustrated with 5 plates. With the elaborate ownership stamp of Russell Sturgis on the title, a later signature on a flyleaf, dated 1878, and a pencil drawing of a sailing ship (The Agnes) on the rear pastedown. This is likely the sea-faring Russell Sturgis (1805-1887), born to a family of merchants in the China trade. After several voyages and residencies in the East, and after the death of his wife, in 1844 he retired to Boston to care for his children. After re-marrying he decided, in 1851, to return to the East and steamed for England on the first leg of the voyage. He arrived too late for the connecting steamer, and while waiting in London was offered a partnership by the senior member of Barings Bank. He accepted, eventually became the head of the firm, and never returned to the United States (Wikipedia). Leather worn, front joint separating about 1 1/2 inches from the top. Label chipped with loss of two letters the last "s" in Seaman's and the "d" in Friend. Some damp-staining of the paper near the front and the back. Some gatherings loosening. A Good copy.
