156 pp, 8vo (8 1/2" H). B&w reproductions, map. "Written by a young, ardently romantic ship's clerk who signs himself 'A Wanderer' (almost certainly Noah Johnson, these journals) record the heady adventures of the American privateer 'Yankee' on her first two voyages during the War of 1812. Only recently discovered among the possessions of a New England family, they are printed here for the first time. These historic journals bring vividly to life sea voyages that epitomized Yankee daring and skill, dedication to freedom, and Christian charity in dealing with conquered enemies. What life was like aboard a privateer and how these warships were manned, sailed, and deployed against the enemy is nowhere better illustrated than in these superb firsthand accounts." Very light browning on fore-edge of text block. Dust jacket has very light edge wear - mainly at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, scattered small/tiny scuffs, very light soiling, light browning - mainly on spine and flap-folds.
