Two Years Before the Mast by Richard Henry Dana 1912 Edition

Like this item?

Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.


This is a very old book that has seen a lot of life. "Two Years Before the Mast" was first published in 1840 and is the accurate but fictional portrayal of life on the high seas at that time. It is fascinating if only to get the sense of what such a hard occupation was like.

This edition was printed in 1912. The boards were originally red cloth, but are now much stained and faded. The spine has partially separated from the front board. The first front end paper is missing, but otherwise, the entire edition is intact. There are no loose or missing pages and the print is sharp and clear. There are no marks, rips or tears, either.

This edition was published by J. M. Dent & Sons, London and E. P. Dutton & Co., New York. It is 338 pages long and measures 6 3/4" by 4 1/4" in size.
