The clipper ship Young America launched in 1853 into a career of high-speed cargo service across the oceans of the world. Known for record-breaking time between ports of call on the East and West Coast of North America and to Europe, she commanded high rates for cargo and earned high profits for her owners. This lot includes an extraordinary crew roster recording their name, height, hair and skin color, advance payment, wages, and position on the ship. There is also a packet of more than two dozen each of checks and receipts related to the members of the crew. The lot also includes an 11 x 14-inch print of the Young America in full sail, an 8 x 10-inch ink-jet print of the ship from a much larger lithograph by Nathaniel Currier, and a 5 x 7-inch black and white photograph of the ship with all sails furled. The lot includes some printed research material gathered by the consignor regarding the Young America. The ship was last seen sailing past the Delaware breakwater on February 17, 1888 with a load of crude oil.
