Gilt foredges. ; B&W Engravings; 12mo 7" - 7½" tall; 240 pages; Longish poem, supposedly based on the wreck of the steamer Pulaski near Savannah. The title poem is followed by notes and some shorter poems. The poem was written in 1841, but published by Riker as a "gift book" with a special presentation page in the front. This is the first edition from 1850 which preceded the DeRenne (II 540) second edition. Truly a difficult book to find.
