First Edition. "Hilarious and thrilling voyages with the crew of the Nellie Swan, who never could beat their captain at poker; with Kitty McCann, master mariner in her own right, half owner and sole boss of the coastwise schooner Morning Star; and with the discouraged crew of the Rosabelle - a gentle name for a ship so vixenish that no sailor would stay with her. It is a book of unusual adventure for those who love the sea". Scarce title in original illustrated jacket. Near Fine in Very Good dustjacket with shallow edge chips and modest soiling, dime sized chip at lower rear panel.
