Title: Along the Florida Reef
Author: Charles F. Holder
Publisher: D. Appleton and Company
Printing Year: 1892

Condition/Details: Bound in light red cloth with bright gilt embossing and pictorial front cover, this antique volume is a scarce autobiographical account of the explorations of a group of boy naturalists. The author writes of his approximately of his early years in the Gulf of Mexico, and the greater purpose of this book, in the following manner: "A portion of nearly every day was spent in floating over the coral gardens, for which the locality is famous, or in hunting or fishing for strange animals which there found a home. The excursions were made, as described, under the guidance of a naturalist who, while a surgeon in the army and stationed at the post, was studying the corals and other animals of the reef, and who relied not a little upon the young naturalists and divers to collect the specimens in which he was interested, and which, at the request of Professors Agassiz and Baird, ultimately found their way into the Smithsonian Institution, the Museum of Comparative Zoology at Cambridge, and other institutions of science throughout the country. The recollections of these days - the swimming-trips along coral banks, exciting chases after turtle and shark, visits to the haunts of the sea-gull, dives to the home of the queen-couch in the deep lagoon - are still fresh in the author's memory, and it is hoped that some sense of the enthusiasm of the boy naturalists of the reef, in outdoor studies, may be imparted to the young readers of this volume."

The book measures approximately 6.25" x 8" and contains 273 pages plus 4 pages of publisher's advertisements. Shipping cost (within the U.S.) for this lot will be: $4.50.
