330 pages, 8 plates, map endpapers, cloth, backstrip sun faded otherwise very good. 1st edition. Handsome bookplate of noted author Hanson Hart Webster (1877-1940) whose works included Travel by air, land, and sea; The ship book and American classics. From the preface: "This book is the fruit of our own effort to supply written and contemporary documentation for a section of American history which we ourselves came to know chiefly through oral tradition in the Far East and on the Atlantic seaboard. It is the first popular account of the great and far-reaching effect that the lure of the wealth of the Far East has had in building up the American nation; in stimulating its westward expansion, and determining its foreign policy. It includes much that is already familiar to lovers of the great traditions of the sea - the exploits of our early merchant marine, of the whalers, the story of the clippers and the California gold rush. But it includes also a reinterpretation of many familiar facts in our history that have, seemingly, nothing to do with the Orient, and will, we trust, furnish a reliable basis for forming an opinion about the many problems now disturbing us in the Pacific.".
