On Fighting Decks in 1812, by Frederick H. Costello

                Dana Estes,  1899

My sincere thanks to Dr. Jennifer Bryan, Head of Special Collections and Archives in the Nimitz Library at the U.S. Naval Academy for these scarce images.

Sacker's treatment of the waves and clouds below the ship can also be seen on the unsigned cover for The American Sailor (1899). A version also exists in green (see below), in a two-tone version, without a spine design (also below), as well as in the above color cloth with a reddish-brown design and lettering.
