On offer is a super, original Civil War era ship's log book of the Schooner Napoleon handwritten by an unknown author, likely the First Mate given the statistical details provided and all manner of important details to the ship's record: weather conditions, loading and unloading of all manner of cargo including cattle and even contact by gunboats seeking individuals who might be on board. Dated February 5, 1864 the journal runs well into 1865. We learn that the ship Master's were Edward Soher, who was then replaced by E. Nichols. The schooner went up and down the East Coast from New Haven Connecticut to Cape Hatteras, North Carolina making several stops at Jersey City. Given the War was still on and they plied there trade from the Union North to the Confederate South it would not have been extraordinary for a commercial vessel to be boarded for deserters or runaways. The ½ leather oblong 4to, has blue boards with paper label on front panel, marbled edges and the leather is worn and frayed at the spine edges. The front hinge held by single band of fabric and the text block is pulling away but the interiors are much better. Overall G.
