RICHARD HENRY DANA, JR.
Clipped signature of Richard Henry Dana, Jr., signed "Your obt st"
Clipped signature signed "Your obt st/Rich H. Dana Jr". 3¼x¾. Son of a prominent Boston family, Dana (1815-1882, born in Cambridge, Massachusetts) interrupted a Harvard education to enlist as a common merchant seaman. Two Years Before the Mast (1841), based on his diary, is a classic account of life at sea and of the California coast in the 1830s. Dana returned to graduate from Harvard, becoming an expert on maritime law and a champion of the rights of seamen. Dana also wrote The Seaman's Friend (1841), which included a section on maritime law and the rights and duties of seamen. Active in politics, he helped found the Free-Soil Party (1848) and gave free legal aid to blacks captured under the Fugitive Slave Law. Lightly toned. Top and left edges are irregular. Folded once and unfolded. Otherwise in fine condition.
