P F Collier & Son, New York - Harvard Classics, registered edition, © 1937. hardcover, 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", (lacks jacket). Book in VERY GOOD condition. Black leather with gold embossing to spine and front, head- and tailbands, colored endpapers, photographic portrait as frontispiece, with Introduction, and Preface. This famous piece of Americana was first published in 1840, the year Dana was admitted to the Bar, and is an account of the time he spent as a sailor on the Pacific coast gathering hides, having taken a break from his studies at Harvard. While Dana has other claims to fame, his enduring reputation is based on this book. "My great success - my book - was a boy's work," he said. One English writers called it "the greatest sea-book that was ever written in any language" (W Clark Russell).
