Detailed Product Description
New York, 1954. 294 pp, b/w illustrations. Blue cloth hardcover with no dust jacket. Near Fine condition.

Illustrated by Thomas Fogarty and George Varian. Considered by some to be the finest single-handed adventure story ever written.

Sailing Alone Around the World was published by Century Company in 1900. The sailing memoir records Slocum's amusing experience as the first person to sail around the world alone. National Fisherman called it "[a] literary gem, adroitly and engagingly written," but interest extends beyond mere sea-aficionados. Excitement for the voyage was universal, and Slocum was awaited by admirers at his ports. To these he gave popular lectures and lantern-slide shows upon his arrival, including the English writers Edwin Arnold and Arthur Ransome.

The memoir was first published in installments before its popularity became such that it was issued in lavishly illustrated book form. Slocum conveys an appreciably casual, almost self-deprecating, style. Contemporary reviews speak as well of it even now as "one of the most readable books in the whole library of adventure" (Sports Illustrated). "There is so much to this book that it is not surprising that it is has been continually in print since 1889.this book has literary merit, thoughtful and beautifully written and packed with incident" (Nautical Magazine).
