CAMERON, R. N. , COMMANDER V. LOVETT (EDITED BY) (VERNEY LOVETT CAMERON)
The Log of a Jack Tar; Or, the Life of James Choyce, Master Mariner with O'brien's Captivity in France
London, England: T. Fisher Unwin, 1891. 1st Edition; 1st Printing. Hardcover. B&W Illustrations; This book is in Very Good+ condition and was possibly issued without a dust jacket. The book has been restitched, but is in its original binding. The book and its contents are in mostly clean, bright condition.

Both front and rear endpapers have been repaired professionally. The endpapers have noticeable ground-in dirt and finger marks. This book is part of "The Adventure Series". "Verney Lovett Cameron (1 July 1844 – 24 March 1894) was an English traveller in Central Africa and the first European to cross (1875) equatorial Africa from sea to sea..The remainder of Cameron's life was chiefly devoted to projects for the commercial development of Africa, and to editing and writing. His last work was the editing of the personal adventure narrative of the Master Mariner James Choyce, who had sailed as a teenager in 1797 aboard a whaler to the Pacific Ocean. Choyce's narrative covering 26 years of seafaring life is one of the earliest works of an Englishman's experiences in South America." "Of the truth of Choyce's narrative there can be no manner of doubt. Of course there must be some small allowance made for the fact of his having written his memoirs in a consecutive form after he had given up the sea; and considering the many adventures he experienced and the various hardships he endured, the notes which he was able to preserve must have been extremely scanty, though his memory was, as is porved by the accuracy of his description of his various routes in France, very exact and retentive." According to Comm. Cameron, both James Choyce and Captain O'Brien were captured by the forces of Napoleon and imprisoned. Both men escaped and managed to return to English vessels. James Choyce was a seaman and whaler who traveled more than once around the coast of South America. He includes some description of the Gallapagos islands in his narrative.. Very Good+ .

 CHAPELLE, HOWARD IRVING, The Baltimore Clipper Its Origin and Development
CHAPELLE, HOWARD IRVING
The Baltimore Clipper Its Origin and Development
Salem, MA: The Marine Research Society, 1930. 1st Trade Edition; 1st Printing. Hardcover. B&W Illustrations; This book is in Very Good+ condition and is missing all but the front panel of the dust jacket which has been laid in. The text pages are clean and bright. Also laid in is a photograph of a Baltimore Clipper ship taken by the Waters Company of San Francisco, CA. "Baltimore clippers were first built as small, fast sailing vessels for trade around the coastlines of the United States and the Caribbean Islands. Their hull-lines tended to be very sharp, with a "V"-shaped cross-section below the waterline and strongly raked stem, stern posts, and masts. Because of this design, they were extremely unstable and many were known to capsize even at anchor with all sails down. The origins of the type are unknown but certainly hulls conforming to the concept were being built in Jamaica and Bermuda (the hull of the Bermuda sloop, designed for the open ocean, was broader than the Jamaican and deeper than the American or iroqouis[clarification needed]) and by the late 18th century were popular both in Britain and the United States as merchant craft. The Royal Navy did not find them useful during the French Revolutionary Wars and Napoleonic Wars because they were unstable gun platforms due to their design for extreme speed compared to their size. Furthermore, the schooner rig does not allow sails to be backed creating a disadvantage in maneuverability in battle. They were adopted after the wars to pursue slave ships." (from Wikipedia).

Both the civilian mariners and the merchant vessels are managed by a combination of the government and private sectors, and engage in commerce or transportation of goods and services in and out of the navigable waters of the United States. The Merchant Marine primarily transports cargo and passengers during peacetime; in times of war, the Merchant Marine can be an auxiliary to the United States Navy, and can be called upon to deliver military personnel and materiel for the military. Merchant Marine officers may also be commissioned as military officers by the Department of Defense. This is commonly achieved by commissioning unlimited tonnage Merchant Marine officers as Strategic Sealift Officers in the Naval Reserves. ". Very Good in Very Good- dust jacket .

LE GOLIF, LOUIS ADHEMAR TIMOTHEE
Memoirs of a Buccaneer Being a Wondrous and Unrepenting Account of the Prodigious Adventures and Amours of King Louis XIV's Loyal Service
New York: Simon and Schuster, 1954. 1st Edition; 1st Printing. Hardcover. This book is in Very Good+ condition and has a Very Good- dust jacket. The book and its contents are in clean, bright condition. The text pages are clean and bright. The dust jacket has one triangular chip to the bottom front panel, along with a couple of small edge tears. "According to the memoir, which I will say now is the only definitive documentation of any boucanier named Louis le Golif or going by the moniker Half-Arse (more on that in a bit) , le Golif was born in France and sent off to the West Indies as an indentured servant in his 20s. The questions arise early and often. Le Golif tells us he was indentured to a planter named Monsieur Piedouille. A cruel, unyielding sort of fellow, Piedouille eventually drives le Golif to run away. In this he is joined by his "... Good brother and matelot" Pulverin. The two men set out in a skiff at night looking for freebooting adventure. The issue here is that Piedouille's plantation is on the island of Tortuga, or so it seems. At no point during the period the story is supposed to have taken place, circa 1665, were there plantations on the buccaneer stronghold of Tortuga." (from Pauline's Pirates & Privateers, website).
