  • By J. Fenimore Copper
  • London: Richard Bentley, 1839
  • Two volumes, first edition, first printing (1839 on title page w/no additional printings on the copyright page, and Preface & Introduction

    "The first full-scale history of the United States navy.

There is much scarce material on the major figures in naval history in the Colonial and Federal periods, as well as the conflicts with the Barbary pirates, and the War of 1812."
