MARRYAT, CAPTAIN [FREDERICK]. The Phantom Ship; or, the Flying Dutchman. 8vo, original drab boards, rebacked to style with supplied spine label; owner's blindstamp to title, foxing, heaviest to front and end matter, one corner of front flyleaf and terminal blank repaired; card slipcase. First American edition. Uncommon, and as Wolff notes, Marryat was in America around the time of publication, so that the American edition might have priority (the English edition published the same year); further, this title "...marks the first appearance of many standard werewolf motifs" (Bleiler, Supernatural, 1110). Wolff 453. New York: W.H. Colyer, 1839
