This is a very good hardcover. Circa 1920's David McKay Publishing. This copy is very clean inside. The pages only have a hint of light natural tanning from age and are very clean and free of markings. Illustrated endpapers feature the Golden Book illustration and have light tanning but no serious foxing. The binding is tight and straight, pages tight to binding. The olive green hardcover boards have a color illustrated frontispiece with title and author lettering. There is wearing to front but overall very good as illustration and lettering wearing but legible. The back of hardcover boards is very good in solid olive green with only very light wearing, mostly edges and corners. Crown octavo size or 5" x 8" with 385 pages.

Originally published in 1898. The Cruise of the Cachalot tells the story of a whaling expedition from the perspective of a seaman. Semi-autobiographical, the author tells the travel and expedition story through the first mate on the Cachalot. The book was so well received upon publication that is became a staple on school reading lists in the early 20th century. Multiple full color illustrations by Stephen Reid bring the tale to life for readers of all ages. Great literary adventure stories fill the pages. Sea stories from yesterday make for great adventure books.
