STEBBINS, Ellen Bradford
A Home on the Rolling Deep
West Roxbury, [Self-Published], 1939. A memoir by this native of coastal Massachusetts, who was born in 1851, and died in 1950. Stebbins was born into a sea-faring family, and much of her 50+ page memoir recounts voyages aboard ships bound for Liverpool and New Orleans; around Cape Horn; to Rio de Janeiro, and San Francisco. This copy is inscribed by the author in 1940 to Dr. Chester Mills. Moderate insect damage to the covers near the spine, and edge-sunning to the covers; a very good copy in stapled wrappers. Scarce: 4 copies listed in OCLC. [#034758] $125
