2 Morison, Samuel Eliot JOHN PAUL JONES: A SAILOR'S BIOGRAPHY
NY Time Incorporated 1964 Reprint. 1 Soft Cover Very Good+ with no dust jacket

VERY GOOD+. John Paul Jones, our foremost sea captain in the Revolution and the man who in many ways set the standards for Annapolis, has long deserved a fair-minded, full-length biography. In this book he lives again, in the salty, authentic, revivifying prose of Samuel Eliot Morison. In preparation for this biography he sailed the English, American and French waters where Captain Jones had his greatest triumphs, and, equally important, he has drawn upon the American, British, French and Russian naval archives of Paris and the old St. Petersburg. Widely recognized as the only authoritative, modern biography of the naval officer frequently referred to as the father of the U. S. Navy. It vividly portrays the illustrious career of John Paul Jones, from his early training at sea in the British West Indian merchant trade to his exploits in the newly independent American navy and his appointment as an admiral in the Russian navy and command of a squadron in the Black Sea. With compelling detail and remarkable insight, the dramatic narrative captures Jones's tenacity and fierce dedication and loyalty to his men and country, despite ill treatment and only begrudged recognition from his superiors. Samuel Eliot Morison, Rear Admiral, Reserve (1887-1976) was an American historian, noted for producing works of maritime history that were both authoritative and highly readable. A sailor as well as a scholar, Morison garnered numerous honors, including two Pulitzer Prizes, two Bancroft Prizes, and the Presidential Medal of Freedom. . Trade Paperback. 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. 456, (2) pp
