Author Name    Rabl, S.S.

Title   MOBTOWN CLIPPER.

Publisher    Cornell Maritime Press, Cambridge, Maryland, 1949, Ist edition.

Seller ID   11550

277 pp, 8vo, hard cover in dust jacket. "The year 1809 found shipping in the young American Republic paralyzed by the Embargo Act of Thomas Jefferson, its President. From this beginning, Mr. Rabl has unfolded a thrilling tale of men, ships and privateering in the War of 1812...the story of Eduardo Chavez who dreamed of a ship that would outsail and out-maneuver any ship afloat; of Captain Thomas Boyle, America's greatest daredevil and fun-loving Irishman, who sent his Proclamation to Great Britain's rulers putting the United Kingdom and Ireland under rigorous blockade; of beautiful and vivacious Rose LeCompte who loved a man she could not have. But most of all, it is the story of the clipper ship, Chasseur, the visions and the heartaches that went into her building, the thrills and excitement of her battles as a privateer and her many episodes as a merchantman in the China trade. With Baltimore as the focal point during the War of 1812, this story of Tom Boyle and the Chasseur, offering all the action, color and romance of the period, is made intensely vivid through Mr. Rabl's wide experience with ships and the sea." Light edge wear to boards, light wrinkling a top/bottom of spine, tiny areas of dis-coloration on hinges, shallow depression on bottom of textblock. Dust jacket has small chips and tears, foxing to some edges moderate edge wear, three very small perforations on hinges, light fading and small scuffs on spine, now protected in mylar sleeve.
