Yale, Mystic Seaport and a Mediterranean Connection

An archivist at the Beinecke Library at Yale recently discovered that an illustrated manuscript volume in their collection is a companion volume to one in ours. The volumes, entitled "Costumes of the Mediterranean", were the work of Edward C. Young, a young marine sergeant aboard Commodore Matthew Calbraith Perry's sloop-of-war CONCORD in the Mediterranean from 1830 to 1832.
