c. 1839 James Fenimore Cooper – History Of The United States Navy

NOTICE

********NOW OPERATING FROM OUR NEW HEADQUARTERS ********



Now fully operational from the beautiful Pacific North West, we encourage all to keep a close eye as we unpack posted offerings and continue what will be an ongoing effort of unpacking the collection while taking stock with an eye toward thinning out our accumulation of treasures. After years of seeking out and acquiring all manner of quality antique Americana from simple but seldom surviving items of special interest to historically important treasures, Janet and I look forward to offering the fruits of our years of seeking out such to new and appreciative homes.

All in especially pleasing condition, this desirable two volume set by James Fenimore Cooperis titled Naval History of the Navy of the United States of America and was issued in English by Paris publisher: Baudry's European Library in 1839 the same year as the American and British first editions. Leather and board bindings are in excellent condition with only the most minor evidence of period handling. Content is bright and clean with light edge foxing throughout. Cooper, who had joined the navy at age 16, was already famous for his Leatherstocking Tales when he wrote his History of the Navy of the United States of America the winter of 1838-1839. Published in 1839, it is still a valid history offering fascinating detailed accounts of U. S. Naval history and engagement from inception through the time of authorship. An interesting read and a desirable addition to any library.
(An interesting period side note here is that a feud had long before developed between partisans of Oliver Hazard Perry and those of Jesse Duncan Elliott, his second in command, concerning Elliott's conduct during the battle of Lake Erie. While Cooper dutifully sifted the evidence and tried hard to be impartial, his account did not satisfy Perry's supporters, and Cooper was attacked in the press as a result. He answered his critics with the publication of The Battle of Lake Erie in 1842.)
