Octavo [23.5 cm] Blue cloth with a red leather gilt stamped title label on the spine. Marbled text block edges. Ex-library. The covers are heavily bowed, the cloth at the spine ends is frayed and chipped, and the leather spine label is abraded, obscuring a bit of the title. The spine has a library label and small painted dot. The underlying boards are exposed at the corners. There are several library markings on the endsheets and first few pages. The text block has almost completely come away from the covers. The pages at the beginning are nearly completely detached.
From the Preface- "The work contains, in alphabetical order, the names of all officers of the navy and marine corps, commissioned, warranted and appointed, including volunteer officers who have entered the service since the establishment of the navy department in 1798, showing the dates of their original entry, progressive rank, and the manner in which those no longer in the service severed their connection from it."
