A couple faint scuffs to leather. Unused publisher's bookplate laid in. 1979 Full-Leather. ix, [5], 55, [3] pp. 8vo. A short story by American writer Edward Everett Hale, first published anonymously in the Atlantic Monthly in December 1863. The novel is the story of American army lieutenant Philip Nolan, who renounces his country during a trial for treason and is consequently sentenced to spend the rest of his days at sea without so much as a word of news about the United States. Although the story is set in the early 1800s, the story is an allegory about upheaval of the American Civil War and was intended to promote the Union cause.
