10Title:  Two years before the mast and twenty-four years after   
 Creator:  Dana, Richard HenryJr, 1815-1882 | Thompson, Edward Ernest | Hughes, H. Howard (Homer Howard), 1902-1993 | P.F. Collier & Son Corporation | H. Howard Hughes Moby Dick Collection (Newberry Library) | Herman Melville Collection (Newberry Library) 
 Notes:  "With introduction, notes and illustrations." Richard Henry Dana (1815-1882) of Boston left his studies at Harvard in 1834 in the hope that a sea voyage would aid his failing eyesight. He shipped out of Boston as a common seaman on board the brig Pilgrim bound for the Pacific, and returned to Massachusetts two years later. Completing his education, Dana became a leader of the American bar, an expert on maritime law, and a life-long advocate of the rights of the merchant seamen he had come to know on the Pilgrim and other vessels. Two years before the mast is based on the diary Dana kept while at sea. First published in 1841, it is one of America's most famous accounts of life at sea. It contains a rare and detailed account of life on the California coast a decade before the Gold Rush revolutionized the region's culture and society. Dana chronicles stops at the ports of Monterey, San Pedro, San Diego, Santa Barbara, and Santa Clara. He describes the lives of sailors in the ports and their work of hide-curing on the beaches, and he gives close attention to the daily life of the peoples of California: Hispanic, Native American, and European.
