    Description

    Log Book of the Schooner Vulture, 1808. Sixteen pages, 8" x 12.5", various locations at sea and at port, November 23 through December 15, 1808. Modern kraft paper wrapper; sewn binding. This brief but exciting ship's log documents the travels of the schooner Vulture out of Bristol, Rhode Island and bound for Charleston, South Carolina. Along the way, the weather grows dark and violent, and the ship's captain changes course for New Providence, The Bahamas, in need of water and experiencing leaks. This course is also abandoned due to foul weather, and the ship ultimately puts in at Havana, Cuba, in distress. Moderately toned and worn, occasional dampstains; several disbound pages.
