Very good condition in a very good dustwrapper. The Atlantic, the only ship that ran out of coal in 1873, resulting in the loss of lives of 562 people. The blunder of the engineer combined with the negligence of the master to produce one of the worst maritime disasters the world has ever known. Burgundy boards, gilt title to spine.
SIGNED by the author to title page (with personal dedication). A few minor marks to boards. A few minor foxspots to prelims. Pictorial dustwrapper is browned to verso and faded to spine.
