1.   Adams, N.
Under the Mizzen Mast; A Voyage Round the World
Publisher: Henry Hoyt, 1873 Boston, MA
Book. Book condition: Poor. No Jacket. Hardcover 12mo - over 6 - 7" tall "A narrative of this voyage was prepared for the 'Congregationalist' at the request of the editors, and appeared in successive numbers of that paper. On application of the present publisher for leave to issue it in a volume, it has assumed the form in which it now appears, revised and enlarged. The manner in which it originated explains its miscellaneous and somewhat desultory character.. So much interest in this narrative has been expressed that the author has been led to insert in a new edition things which it would have contained in the fir4st, had the design been to give more than a brief sketch of the voyage." The voyage went around Cape Horn to California, then on the The Sandwich Islands, Hong Kong, Canton, Shanghai, Singapore, Macao, and Manila. Illustrated with plates of engravings. 345 pages. Book is in POOR condition; needs rebinding; cover complete and present, but loose. Text pages are also complete. No dust jacket.

2.   Anson, Lord George
A Voyage Around the World In the Years 1740-4
Publisher: J. M. Dent & Sons Ltd, 1942 London
Book. Book condition: Good. No Jacket. Hardcover 12mo - over 6 - 7" tall Everyman's Library No. 510. Introduction by John Masefield. "George Anson, Baron Anson, born on 23rd April 1697 at Shugborough, Staffs. Entered the navy in 1712; commanded squadron in the Pacific, 1740; returned, having sailed round the world, 1744. Created a peer, 1747; First Lord of the Admiralty, 1751; Admiral of the fleet, 1761. Died in 1762." "This book is one of the most popular of the English books of voyages. It is a pleasantly written work. The story is told with a grace and quietness 'very grateful and refreshing.' The story itself if remarkable. It bears witness to the often illustrated contrast between the excellence of Englishmen and the stupidity of their governors. The management of the squadron before it sailed gave continuous evidence of imbecility. Something fine in a couple of hundred 'emaciated ship-mates' drove them on to triumph through every possible disadvantage.." xxii + 384 pages with index + Everyman's Library List of 972 volumes. Book is in GOOD condition. No dust jacket.

3.   Brassey, Annie
A Voyage in the 'Sunbeam': Our Home on the Ocean for Eleven Months
Publisher: John B. Alden, 1884 New York
Book. Book condition: Good. No Jacket. Hardcover 8vo - over 7 - 9" tall "This volume needs no elaborate preface. A general sketch of the voyage which it describes was published in the Times immediately after our return to England. That letter is reprinted here as a convenient summary of the 'Sunbeam's' performances. But these prefatory lines would indeed be incomplete if they did not contain a well-deserved tribute to the industry and accuracy of the author. The voyage would not have been undertaken, and assuredly it would never have been completed, without the impulse derived from her perseverance and determination. Still less would any sufficient record of the scenes and experiences of the long voyage have been preserved had it not been for her painstaking desire not only to see everything thoroughly, but to record her impressions faithfully and accurately. The practised skill of a professional writer cannot reasonably be expected in these simple pages, but their object will have been obtained if they are the means of enabling more home-keeping friends to share in the keen enjoyment of the scenes and adventures they describe." The voyage took the party to South America (Brazil and Argentina), Tahiti, Hawaii, Japan, Macao, Singapore, Ceylon, Aden, and the Suez Canal. Illustrated by numerous woodcuts. xv + 511 pages. Book is in GOOD condition. No dust jacket.

Appr.: | AUD 34.72 CAD 33.33 EUR 23.47 GBP 16.50 JPY 2,500.00 MXN 416.67 ZAR 357.14

4.   Pinchot, Gifford Bryce
Giff and Stiff in the South Seas
Publisher: The John C. Winston Company, 1933 Philadelphia, PA
Book. Book condition: Very Good. No Jacket. Hardcover 8vo - over 7 - 9" tall "A long cruise in the Southern Pacific had been talked about in my family, on and off, during my entire lifetime. But when Stiff, my roommate at school, and I had a chance during our Christmas vacation to see the ship Dad had bought, you bet I was excited. Actually going over the ship sort of got the idea through my head that at last we really were going in our own boat to the South Seas! This had been one of Dad's dreams for forty years. Stiff and I sure were glad to see the ship. Weeks and months on strange lands would be a lot better than French and algebra in the best school in the world. Dad wasn't a bit happier about getting going than we were, and certainly didn't get any more fun out of just being on the ship.." The boys and the family cruise on the Mary from New York to Tahiti. Illustrated with woodcuts and numerous photographic plates. xi + 241 pages. Book is in VERY GOOD condition. No dust jacket.

Appr.: | AUD 20.83 CAD 20.00 EUR 14.08 GBP 9.90 JPY 1,500.00 MXN 250.00 ZAR 214.29
