    Riley, James:  An Authentic Narrative of the Loss of the American Brig Commerce, Wrecked on the Western Coast of Africa in the Month of August, 1815 with an Account of the Suffering of her Surviving Officers and Crew, Who Were Enslaved by the Wandering Arabs on the Great African Desart, or Zahahrah.....  Hartford: Self Published, 1817. First Edition, Second Printing. Good+ in its original, full leather covered boards with gilt rules applied to the spine and with a worn and chipped black leather title block with gilt text. The lowest line of text on this spine label shows the word "Second" with anything following missing a result of a chip to the label. This dealer is of the opinion that this copy is a second printing as in all other respects it follows the same features seen in the first edition. It is an octavo of 8 3/8 by 5 inches with the leather scuffed around the edges of the boards and with the leather worn through over the tips of the boards. The first free end page has been reinserted and reinforced. The map just behind the first free end page has been torn in half lengthwise with the left half missing completely. The recto and verso sides of the frontispiece dampness stain to its lower two inches. The contents are generally tanned with foxing appearing on those pages facing the plates. The plates all show foxing around the margins. Pages 87/88, 261/262 and 329/330 had 3 to 4 inch long closed tears which have all been professionally repaired. The Appendix (pages i through xxxiv) all have a dampness stain to the lower quarter of each page. 460 pages of text followed by a 34 page appendix, which contains a 10 page English to Arabic vocabulary. Illustrated with a fold-out map (which is damaged as aforesaid), a frontispiece portrait of Riley and eight numbered engraved plates. The title page and the copyright pages each make note of "ten handsome copperplate engravings." Unless the map and frontispiece portrait of Riley are the ninth and tenth engravings, it is possible that a binder's error may have caused a missing tenth plate as page [448] is blank. Sabin indicates 8 plates with the first edition. Sabin does not mention a second printing. (Sabin, 71397)
