MASTERS OF MEN: A Romance of the New Navy.

Edition: Early vintage reprint.

New York: Doubleday, Page & Co., Inc., 1903. Hardcover - A novel originally published in four parts in McClure's Magazine in 1901. Sixteen year old Dick Halpin is kicked out of school for something he didn't do and joins the navy. Robertson's father was a sea captain on the Great Lakes and Morgan went to sea as a boy, and so writing about the sea came naturally to him. Robertson is perhaps best known for his short novel "Futility, or the Wreck of the Titan"", first published in 1898 which features a British passenger liner deemed to be unsinkable, and carrying an insufficient number of lifeboats. The Titan hits an iceberg and sinks in the North Atlantic, resulting in the loss of almost everyone on board. Illustrated with a frontispiece and three internal plates on glossy stock. A title in the Crowned Masterpieces of Modern Fiction series, bound in marbleized boards with a dark green cloth spine and gilt lettering on the spine, top edge gilt. 335 pp.

Condition: Near fine. An uncommon early edition.
