    It really was Harvard, as it turns out, but I'm glad I spent a few minutes double-checking. I just read the introduction from a 1907 edition of the book. Dana was from a distinguished and wealthy Massachusetts family so his voyage was of the "personal enrichment" variety. The intro also notes that his book was extremely popular in England. It says that 2000 copies of the first reprint sold the first day in Liverpool alone.
