New York: E. M. Blunt, (Proprietor,) and Samuel A. Burtus, 1817. 1/2 leather. Octavo. xvi, [2], 274, 280, [555]-597, [13] pages. Near Fine. Some light browning and foxing to text, a few shallow chips to fore edge of frontispiece fold-out chart.

Early edition of this important work on navigation. The extensive tables have in this edition been stereotyped for the first time, at significant expense. This is the first and only edition of Bowditch to show New York bookseller and stationer Samuel Burtus as a co-publisher. An interesting woodcut ad at rear depicts E. M. Blunt's four-story brick building at 202 Water Street, New York. Collated complete, with fold-out chart at frontispiece and 11 plates, 13 pages of ads at rear. Rebound in a modern half leather binding with marbled paper sides, spine titled in gilt on a red title block, with gilt and blind-stamped horizontal rules. CAMPBELL 7.
