    Partial Log Book of the Leonidas, 1827-1828. Approximately 60 pages, 11" x 16.25", various locations in port and at sea, February 10, 1827 through November 19, 1828. Cardboard covers; initial pages are not extant, also missing pages for the months of May and June 1827. The Leonidas traveled regularly between Charleston, South Carolina and Boston, under the command of Capt. George Bugnon. In August 1828, the ship breaks its Boston-Charleston route and sails for New York, then mysteriously heads for Vera Cruz, Mexico, arriving there three months later. Binding and covers/corners are heavily worn and water damaged. Interior pages are moderately age toned and bear significant water stains.
