Around Cape Horn to Honolulu on the Bark “Amy Turner,” 1880.
Briggs, Vernon L.
Charles E. Lauriat Co., ( 1926), Boston
b/w plates. 186 pp.
No. 455 in a limited edition of 550 copies. By all accounts, Briggs was a young man of brilliant mind and firm purpose when he took ill with tuberculosis, and was sent on a sea voyage by the family physician. This book is the result, and it is a classic. His account of the sailors aloft in a gale is still fresh. A very good copy
