1857. HABERSHAM, A.W. MY LAST CRUISE; or, Where We Went and What We Saw: Being an Account of Visits to the Malay and Loo-Choo Islands, the Coasts of China, Formosa, Japan, Kamtschatka, Siberia, and the Mouth of the Amoor River. By A.W. Habersham, Lieut. U.S. Navy, and Late of the North Pacific Surveying and Exploring Expedition. Philadelphia: J.B. Lippincott, 1857. First edition. 8vo., brown cloth with decorative blind-stamp, spine lettered and decorated in gilt; frontis, pictorial half-title; 507 pp. + 28 plates + back ads. Lacking ffep, else very good and bright with some mild edgewear and a few edge nicks to the cloth. Internally, mildly over-opened in spots, with a few signatures just starting and an occasional touch of foxing. The overall impression is of a much better than average copy of this delicate book. An interesting and important primary resource on pre-Restoration Japan. (Inventory #: 66246)
