BEFORE THE MAST IN THE CLIPPERS

From an entirely different angle the early history of the clippers is presented. This time through the actual diaries of Charles Abbey, age fourteen, as he set sail in a famous clipper, thrilled, frightened, excited, suffering from mul de mer, he writes of his adventures, entries are made while events are fresh and clear thereby giving valuable information and original material that yachtsmen will find exceedingly valuable. These entries are interspersed with chapters by Commander Gosnell who explains the life, seamanship, the actual records and his history of clippers, and gives the whole a note of authority and practical significance.
