Descrizione:

This book was a re-issue of the first edition. It was reissued by the Captiain's wife, when he lost his life in a second attempt to cross the ocean in an even smaller boat. The Capatin's wife reissued the book in an attempt to bring in monies to support herself, since everything had been lost with the Captain's demise. The good wife's plea for sales of the book can be found on page 151 of this book.This book is brick red with both covers embossed and a gilt title on the spine. Book is in very good condition--tight, clean and square. There is light shelfwear to the spine top and bottom and to corners. The insides of the book covers are foxed, due to age.

Descrizione libro Createspace, United States, 2015. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. From the PREFACE. The voyage of Captain Thomas Crapo and his wife in a dory boat from New Bedford, Massachusetts, to England, although several years ago, is as fresh in the memory of the people as though it was but yesterday. I did not see them or the boat when they sailed, but I was anxious to get the daily papers, in order to find out if they were reported, and was more than pleased to see that every time they were reported they were both well and in good spirits. And at last the papers announced the arrival of the captain and his plucky wife at Penzance, England. People did not think so much about the captain making the attempt as they did the idea of taking his wife along. And as the voyage was ended without any serious disasters the newspapers of every country loudly applauded them. Since it was reported that the attempt was to be made, I was very anxious to see the hero, but never did to my knowledge, until about five or six years ago, when I in company with my wife attended one of the churches on a Sunday evening. When near the close of the evening services the pastor extended an invitation to everyone present who would like to testify for Jesus. Several responded and gave their testimony, when presently a gentleman directly in front of me arose and made a few remarks. After concluding his speech the pastor spoke in this manner as near as I can recall it: Thank God, after years: of trials and tribulations on the briny deep, and crossing the Atlantic ocean in a small dory, Captain Crapo at last acknowledges his superior, and now stands before the whole world a living witness for Jesus Christ. Praise the Lord. I was all attention at once, the one I had longed most to see was before me, and I could scarcely keep my eyes from him. As I had sailed the ocean myself I could readily foresee some of the dangers they would have to face in that little boat, and his wife being with him when there was scarcely room for one and turn around, made the matter worse, as they would naturally encounter gales, when the captain would find it all he could do to look after the boat, say nothing of his wife. After their arrival they had a little book printed about the voyage which they sold for five cents, and everyone seemed to want them. I got one through a friend of mine and eagerly devoured its contents. A short time ago I was introduced to the captain by his wife, whose acquaintance I had made nearly two years before, and I found him a modest, unassuming man, and not addicted to bragging about his exploits. In talking with him on several occasions, I made up my mind that no adventures had been written that could .equal the personal experience of the captain of more than thirty years at sea. And I proposed the idea of publishing his adventures to the world. After carefully considering the matter he at last consented to do so, as many people had advised him the same a great many times before. But, says Captain Crapo, the people of today are looking for something romantic, that never really existed, and would probably think my book too tame, as I will not have anything in it but truths whether it sells or not, and therefore kind reader you can be assured that every word enclosed between the covers of this book about Captain Crapo and his wife are facts, and no fairy tale to mislead. So with the kind permission of our friends everywhere we will begin our story as told by the captain himself, as correctly as he can recall the facts; many of minor importance no doubt have passed from his memory long ago, but those coupled with his experience written in this book, he will probably remember as long as he lives.
