Two Years Before the Mast

New York: Harper & Brothers, 1840. First Edition; BAL 4434; “asserted and generally accepted” (but not definitively established) second printing; binding B (tan muslin); state 3 (no priority is established or suggested regarding either binding or the three known states of the muslin). These points are often erroneously referred to as “issues.” This is loose usage of a specific term: printing, state, issue and edition are often used willy-nilly, as if they are interchangeable, although they are not. Rebacked and mended, with a contemporary ownership signature (”Appleton”). Good; in a custom clamshell box.
