On offer is a super group of four [4] folio manuscript logbooks [2] and exercise books [2] handwritten and compiled by Navy cadet Herman T. Parker who served aboard the United States Naval training ship, USTS Enterprise between 1901 - 1902. Beginning under the command of Edward Merritt Hughes from June 1, 1901 to Oct 12, 1901, and then commanded by Edward David Taussig June 14, 1902. Uniquely the group of four presents the historian and researcher of Naval education an opportunity to view the education alongside the performance as the official USTS Enterprise logs are filled with the standard data all sailors have recorded since the Age of Sail: weather, winds, nautical or ship observations, position and status. There are any number of fascinating entries: the Prince and Princess of Norway boarding the Enterprise, an encounter with the Russian Fleet, a review by the Czar of Russia's Royal Yacht, a German royal yacht in review and boarding ships; a number of exchanges with the British, German and French Navy. There are many cases were the Enterprise encounters Fleets of the Russian Navy. Another interesting entry: "Port watch -went on liberty at 9 commanding officer made official calls on U.S. consul, charge d'affaires Vice Admiral De Loviui Command of Port Vice Admiral Avalon [Admiralty Molars]." The cross-Atlantic includes ports in Scotland, Copenhagen Denmark, Saint Petersburg Russia, Kiel Germany, Antwerp Belgium, Gravesend England, Gibraltar, Funchal Madeira before going back to Boston Massachusetts. The trip and education of a lifetime for this young man who by the end of the voyage would be an 'old salt'. The folio sized books have about 200 pages in total with writing. The books show some signs of ageing but overall G.
