CHEVALLIER, EDGECUMBE. - The Shipwrecked Mariners; a poem.

London, In Aid of the Shipwrecked Fishermen and Mariners' Benevolent Society [1843]. Octavo printed wrapper (chipped and detached); [20]pp, wood engraved illustrations throughout. Stained; a somewhat shipwrecked copy but complete and worth saving. With the inscription of Capt. F. Stephens of 226 Cumberland Street, Sydney. ¶ Rare and captivating. Both lachrymose and thunderous, the dramatic verse illustrates the perils and tragedies of the sea, with some explanatory notes about specific wrecks, and exhorts British hearts - those hearts be praised - to subscribe a trifling annual sum to the Benevolent Society. The wood engravings are particularly apposite.
