Full leather, illustrated with 5 inserted plates. Dana, 1815-1882, wrote this useful manual based on his experience as a common sailor, memorialized in his "Two Years Before the Mast, 1840". There were many reprints - at least 12 in English in the 19th century. Expertly re-backed some time ago with matching leather and a spine label - the label now absent, new endpapers, retaining the two final blanks. View more info
