Long regarded as the most illustrious American journal of maritime history, The American Neptune is commemorated here for its thirty years of service to scholars as well as to laymen, who have found in its pages enthralling accounts of ships, sea lore, and Americana. For this handsomely illustrated capsule commendation, Ernest Dodge, a former editor of the journal, has carefully selected twenty-three articles published in Neptune that represent a cross-section of the journal’s content and widespread appeal. Seasoned with warm and colorful anecdotes, the articles cover a variety of subjects explored by a broad range of authors, including Samuel Eliot Morison, William G. Saltonstall, and a sea captain’s daughter. In his introduction the editor traces the history of The American Neptune from its informal beginnings, through wartime publication, financial crisis, and changing staff and content, to the present.
