Fine condition 1st Edition/1st Printing hardcover in Near-Fine condition dust jacket. "Here is an important study of the crucial era in the evolution of the United States Navy. Between 1865 and 1898, but especially between 1890 and the outbreak of the Spanish-American War, the Navy was transformed from a loosely organized array of small coast-defenders into a unified battle fleet of major offensive capability. An important aspect of the story, which is developed fully by Professor Herrick, is the interrelationship between a burgeoning navy and the growth of American imperialism. Thus, this is much more that the story of what happened to the U.S. Navy during these years: how and why are also explored in depth. The origins of the American naval revolution are examined, the motivations of the men responsible for it are analyzed, and, finally, the results are evaluated." -- dust jacket. This 1st printing is flawless except for very slight foxing on top of the book (outer page edges). The dust jacket is price-clipped but is completely clean save for a single very faint water spot on the bottom edge of the back panel near the spine. It has very little wear and no chips or tears. We will pack this beautiful 1st Edition in bubble-wrap and will ship it in a sturdy box to ensure safe delivery. Bookseller Inventory # ABH497
