4 Backwater Voyage Binns, Archie
New York Reynal & Hitchcock 1936 Cloth Very Good No Dj 5.5x8.25 Edward A. Wilson 
"There are sea books and sea books, and the good or bad of them is much like the good or bad of the whole literary endeavor. A book is a good sea book when it is a good piece of writing." Thus begins the introduction to this wonderful book, made all the more wonderful because the introduction was written by no one less than "The Sage of Searsport," the remarkable Lincoln Colcord -- who, incidentally lived just down the road from this bookstore. So naturally, we are proud. Beyond that, it is a great little book, very well written, beautifully illustrated, and awaiting your order.

13 Idylls of the Sea Bullen, Frank T.
New York D. Appleton and Company 1899 First Edition Cloth Very Good No Dj as Issued Octavo 
The London Academy said of this work, "This book is truly fascinating reading . . . To everything Mr. Bullen brings enthusiasm, a passion for accuracy, and the good writing that comes of knowledge and sincerity." Pretty good praise for this First Mate Bullen who is perhaps better known for his whaling classic, "The Cruise of the Cachelot." This reviewer -- many years ago -- was in the pretty town of Dunedin, New Zealand, when he first learned of Frank Bullen. The author was most highly recommended by a book-dealer in that town; he sold me a copy of Cachelot, which I have never forgotten. This book ranks a very close second. It is in excellent condition and is protected with an acetate covering. A wonderful gift.

The second page in this book, with an illustration of an Old Hunks of a Seaman, speaks well of the whole enterprise. It says, "Good Stuff, This." And it truly is.

It is in good condition, with minor signs of its age. Our copy we are protecting with an acetate covering. For a price, we will be able to part with it. Great gift.

17 Left on Labrador Stephens, C. A.
New York Hurst and Company Cloth Good No Dj as Issued Octavo 
This Stephens' tome is sub-titled, "Or the Cruise of the Schooner-Yacht 'Curlew'", as recorded by 'Wash.' As with all his writing, Stephens is herein charming, respectful, exciting and very decent. Any young boy -- or old men -- can read his works with no fear of contamination. Wholesome stuff, this. And this volume is inscribed on the front endpaper -- in what strikes us as 'respectfully' written in huge 7-year-old writing, "Frederick J., 116 Pleasant Street, Fairhaven, Mass." You will enjoy this book which, while presentable, has seen better days. Though tight and intact, and would make a great gift.
