Sailing alone around the world by Joshua Slocum( )

235 editions published between 1800 and 2020 in 14 languages and held by 3,779 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author was the first man to sail alone around the world. He was born in Nova Scotia, but was a naturalised American seaman and adventurer. In Fairhaven, Massachusetts, he rebuilt a 36{u2032} 9{u2033} gaff rigged sloop oyster boat named Spray. On April 24, 1895, he set sail from Boston. He navigated without a chronometer, instead relying on the traditional method of dead reckoning for longitude, which required only a tin clock for approximate time, and noon-sun sights for latitude. More than three years later, on June 27, 1898, he returned to Newport, Rhode Island, having circumnavigated the world, a distance of more than 46,000 miles. His book describing this adventure became an international best-seller. He disappeared in November 1909 while aboard the Spray headed for the West Indies

Joshua Slocum is believed to be the first man to sail single-handedly around the world. After a distinguished nautical career, during which he worked his way up from cabin boy to captain, Slocum wrecked his ship off the coast of Brazil. Turning this catastrophe to his advantage, he built a sailing canoe from the wreckage and sailed back to New York. Moreover, he wrote Voyage of the Liberdade, a chronicle of his trip, and earned some literary success. This spurred him to attempt his perilous voyage. Having lost his fortune in the shipwreck, Slocum began his voyage on a shoestring. He was given the Spray, a century-old oysterboat in need of repairs. Two years and $500 later, he had rebuilt the wreck into an oceangoing wonder. On his 40,000-mile, three-year voyage, Slocum visited six of the seven continents, where he met cannibals, presidents, outlaws, and ambassadors. Amazingly, throughout his travels he lived off the land, fishing, trading, and giving lectures to keep his pantry full. He also met some remarkable people, including Mrs. Robert Louis Stevenson and Paul Kruger, who, believing the world was flat, warned Slocum not to fall off! This adventure will captivate sailors and landlubbers alike

"Joshua Slocum (February 20, 1844 -- on or shortly after November 14, 1909) was the first man to sail single-handedly around the world. He was a Nova Scotian born, naturalised American seaman and adventurer, and a noted writer.

Seul autour du monde sur un voilier de onze métres by Joshua Slocum( Book )

14 editions published between 1930 and 2013 in French and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A la fin du siècle dernier, Joshua Slocum réussit le premier le tour du monde à la voile en solitaire, un exploit répété plusieurs fois depuis. Parti de Boston en avril 1895 sur le Spray, un voilier de onze mètres, il parcourut en un peu plus de trois ans 46000 milles, rédigeant soigneusement son journal de bord considéré aujourd'hui comme l'un des plus beaux récits de navigation jamais écrits. C'est ce récit que Paul Budker a traduit ici pour l'enchantement du lecteur d'aujourd'hui. Un excellent artiste de marine, Léon Haffner, a illustré chaque page du récit d'une gravure évocatrice, en marge du texte
