1169   Log Book from Boston to the Columbia River, 1820-21 Outstanding manuscript log book for the ship Alexander, traveling from Boston to Astoria, Oregon, and from there to the
Sandwich Islands (Hawaii), Canton, China, and the East Indies, endingLog Book from Boston to the Columbia River, 1820-21 Outstanding manuscript log book for the ship Alexander, traveling from Boston to Astoria, Oregon, and from there to the Sandwich Islands (Hawaii), Canton, China, and the East Indies, ending in Batavia, under the command of Capt. Frederick W. Comerford. At the beginning is a wonderful AN, unsigned, by the "Prince of Captains," Pilip Dumaresq (1804-61), one of the most famous American captains in the China trade. He writes "October 24 1820 Took leave of all my friends in Boston and joined the Alexander as a boy before the mast, wages $5 p/month. Feb 21st 1825 took charge of the American ship Hoqua & left London the 6 March for East Indies, arrived at Manila in 108 days perhaps. Left Canton in the same ship the 16 March 1827 and arrived at Boston 114 days having been about 7 Years."The folio 117-leaf log is bound in original suede and held in a modern half leather case. The Alexander no doubt took supplies and men to Astoria from the East Coast, loaded there with furs, salmon, and Hawaiians bound for home, and took their cargo to the Far East to trade. Astoria, the first American settlement on the Pacific, had been established in 1811 by the Pacific Fur Company and named after the company's founder, John Jacob Astor, but was sold to the North West Company at the start of the War of 1812. It never fully reverted to American control, and when the Hudson Bay Company absorbed the North West Company, they abandoned it and built Fort Vancouver. No doubt this log was given to Dumaresq as a souvenir of his first sea voyage. (Image) Est. $5,000-7,500
