American Sailor spine                         American Sailor

The American Sailor, by Elbridge S. Brooks

              Lothrop, 1899

This title also exists in blue with red lettering and a plainer green version (see below). Although unsigned, it is very "Sacker-esque": the treatment of the waves and clouds in the side panels in fact mirrors that of her cover On Fighting Decks in 1812, a cover done the same year. This title is a "companion" to Brooks' The American Soldier, which is signed. An earlier Lothrop edition is seen at the bottom of the page.

My sincerest thanks to Christy Coombs and the staff of the Bangor (ME) Public Library for the image of the blue version.                .
