An extremely scarce mid 19th century edition of C.G.’s Sea Adventures, A Collection of the Most Interesting Episodes Offered by Travelers' Tales.
Worldcat records no existing copies of this edition in libraries.
This edition is bound in a richly decorated and ornate cartonnage binding of the period, adorned with gilt against white and blue. There is a lithograph central panel.
One finely decorated cartonnage volume in 12mo, 233 pages
On note of condition this volume is in poor shape, with rubbing and wear to the binding, with some peeling to the spine, and minor staining to the rear board. The main title page is detached, though the second title remains attached. The binding has loosened from the main text block as well, though it all still holds. Pages 1-24 are just holding on by a single thread. There is some foxing throughout.
