199p., first edition, inscribed by Jokstad on the title page, very shelf- and edge-worn with a half-inch snag at the tail; remnants of torn, soiled and creased dj present with flap-texts and author photo and vita intact. Born in Norway, Jokstad immigrated to American at age fourteen, at writing he was "one of the last captains who sailed in the merchant marine from sail to steam." He relates his career as seaman and cruise ship captain here. At random from p.184: "The primary reason for all the labor trouble in the 1930s was because we had been running with a Chinese crew. A new law came into effect that, after a certain length of time, 25 per cent would be white and 75 per cent Chinese. This would continue decreasing until the crew was all white. The white crews were infiltrated with Reds. One particular waiter on every trip while in Yokohama received around $15,000 from Russia. He brought this right up to my quarters and asked me to put it in the safe for him. The money was brought on board in Japan by two nuns. Whether they were nuns or impostors, I do not know" &c. Jokstad ended his maritime career with a stint at Treasure Island during World War II and then went on to develop motor hotels on the West Coast. N° de ref. de la librería 138932
