The Navy Boys' Cruise on the Pickering: A Boy's Story of Privateering in 1780.

New York: A.L. Burt Company, Publishers, [1909]. Hardcover. Small 8vo. Pale green cloth with black and red lettering and rules and black, red and blue pictorial stamping. 318pp. Frontispiece. Very good. Faint edgewear. Item #45166

A truly attractive, tight and bright first edition of the eleventh volume in this 12-volume Revolutionary War swashbuckling series (1898-1910). The rarely present dust jacket is indeed NOT present on this sharp copy, although a roughly triangular-shaped 4" X 2½" trimmed-out portion of the front portion (featuring most of the title) has been neatly mounted to front flyleaf. Great copy of this scarce title, with superb front board graphics.

Price: $55.00
