New York, E.L. Carey & A. Hart, 1839. First edition, first impression. Hardback. A very good copy in the original boards. An important Gothic maritime novel. The boards are worn as are the spine labels, ownership inscriptions internally. Some splitting to the covers at the spine hinge. Fairly well preserved. Auction records show a three volume first edition. I'm not sure exactly where this fits into things, but there's nothing to suggest it was earlier or later than the triple decker.
