    Whilst the greatest effort has been made to ensure the quality of this text, due to the historical nature of this content, in some rare cases there may be minor issues with legibility. Yet Jefferson's blind faith in his miserable experiment was unshaken. He refused to consider the substitution for it of any policy but war. In his annual message of November 8, 1808, he characteristically avoided mention ing the embargo, in order to throw on Congress the entire responsibility for it. He sought to divert public senti ment by recommending an appropriation of the much vaunted surplus for a comprehensive scheme Of internal improvements. To New England Federalists it seemed cruelly insulting to boast of prosperity while their section was suffering, and to propose squandering the public revenue for the benefit of the South and West, while refusing to provide an efficient navy to protect New England's commerce.

    Whilst the greatest effort has been made to ensure the quality of this text, due to the historical nature of this content, in some rare cases there may be minor issues with legibility. Here is no catalogue of ships, reader, nor naval chronicle, but a story of maritime enterprise; of the shipping, sea borne commerce, whaling, and fishing belonging to one American commonwealth. I have chosen to catch the story athalfflood, when Massachusetts vessels first sought Far Eastern waters. And to stay with it only so long as wind and sail would serve. For to one who has sailed a clip per ship, even in fancy, all later modes of ocean carriage must seem decadent. Having written these pages for your enjoyment, I have not burdened them with citations; but, having discovered much sunken historical treasure, and taken of it but spar ingly, I have added some sailing directions and soundings thereto in a bibliography. Therein also, that this preface may be short, I have thanked the many persons who have aided me in the search. But I cannot close without par ticular acknowledgment to Captain Arthur H. Clark, ou thor of The Clipper Ship Era, for bearing with my constant demands on his time, patience, and memory; and to Dr. Octavius T. Howe, who placed freely at my dis posal the results of many years' research on the Argonauts of forty-nine.

  • - A Life of Christopher Columbus
    by Samuel Eliot Morison
    £27.49

    Admiral of the Ocean Sea is Admiral Samuel Eliot Morison's classic biography of the greatest sailor of them all, Christopher Columbus. It is written with the insight, energy, and authority that only someone who had himself sailed in Columbus' path to the New World could muster. Morison undertook this expedition in a 147-foot schooner and a 47-foot ketch, the dimensions of these craft roughly matching those of Columbus' Santa Maria and Nina. The result is this vivid and definitive biography that accurately details the voyages that, for better or worse, changed the world.

    In 1963, Samuel Eliot Morison, long one of our most distinguished historians, was awarded the first Balzan Prize in History, a prize that rivals the Nobel Prize in splendor and munificence. To receive the award, Admiral Morison had to go to Rome, where he delivered an address, ';The Experiences and Principles of an Historian.' This book includes the address he gave, as well a fascinating account of the award ceremonies, of which he was a central figure.Morison also draws from his own published work to illustrate how a master historian deals with a variety of problems. There are examples from social history, biography, political history, and military history. The entire collection demonstrates brilliantly the breadth of interests, depth of scholarship, and sureness of writing that earned Admiral Morison his great reputation.
