Each takes a smooth board, of some eight feet in length, leads it over the coral shallows far out into the sea, and when a tremendous roller is coming in, jumps upon it, and the roller carries him upon its combing top, with the speed of an arrow, to the shore. A young American, who was among them, not liking to be outdone in a sport which seemed so simple, thought he would try the board and billow. He ventured out a short distance, watched his opportunity, and as the roller came, jumped upon his plank, was capsized, and hove, half strangled onto the beach." No jacket. Four plates of Rio de Janeiro, Valparaiso, Lima, and San Francisco and frontispiece of Commodore R.F. Stockton.(7-3/8"x5") H11204
