New York E. & G. W. Blunt 1843 First American Edition Leather Very Good B & W Engravings 
4to. viii, 128 (i.e. 133) pp. 113 plates. This is the first edition of Darcy Lever's great work published by Blunt in America, and the first to take on an American tone. It contains a "Preface of the American Editor" in which Blunt describes his improvements over the English editions - including sections on hemp, chain, canvas and ordnance used in the U.S.Navy. The 113th plate is of the American merchant ship Queen of the West. It is accompanied by a page describing the rigging. The pagination is confused in this edition, with several page numbers being repeated. Bound in full mottled calf with spine label. A few repairs to leather boards, hinges exposed. Small stain to bottom of page block and pages. Edhes worn, corners bumped. Light foxing and soiling. Binding tight, pages unmarked. Illustrated throughout.
