Adams, N.  
Under the Mizzen Mast; A Voyage Round the World
 Picture
Publisher: Henry Hoyt, 1873 Boston, MA.
Book. Book condition: Poor. No Jacket. Hardcover 12mo - over 6¾ - 7¾" 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.

Anson, Lord George  
A Voyage Around the World In the Years 1740-4
 Picture
Publisher: J. M. Dent & Sons Ltd, 1942 London.
Book. Book condition: Good. No Jacket. Hardcover 12mo - over 6¾ - 7¾" 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.
