First Page:

THE LOG OF A SEA WAIF

=By FRANK T. BULLEN.= =The Log Of a Sea Waif.= Being Recollections of the First Four Years of my Sea Life. Illustrated. Uniform edition, 12mo. Cloth, $1.50. The brilliant author of "The Cruise of the Cachalot" and "Idylls of the Sea" presents in this new work the continuous story of the actual experiences of his first four years at sea. In graphic and picturesque phrases he has sketched the events of voyages to the West Indies, to Bombay and the Coromandel coast, to Melbourne and Rangoon. Nothing could be of more absorbing interest than this wonderfully vivid account of foks'l humanity and the adventures and strange sights and experiences attendant upon deep sea voyages. It is easy to see in this book an English companion to our own "Two Years before the Mast." =Idylls of the Sea.= 12mo. Cloth, $1.25. "This book is truly fascinating reading.... To everything Mr. Bullen brings enthusiasm, a passion for accuracy, and the good writing that comes of knowledge and sincerity." London Academy. "A fresh sea breeze blows through the whole book, and entertainment and instruction are delightfully blended." The Daily Mail. =The Cruise of the Cachalot.= Round the World after Sperm Whales. Illustrated. 12mo. Cloth, $1.50. MR. RUDYARD KIPLING writes the author: "It is immense there is no other word. I've never read anything that equals it in its deep sea wonder and mystery, nor do I think that any book before has so completely covered the business of whale fishing, and at the same time given such real and new sea pictures. I congratulate you most heartily. It's a new world that you've opened the door to." =D. APPLETON AND COMPANY, New York.=
