Descripción:

Later 3/4 tan cloth with marbled boards. 16mo. 329pp. Illustrated. Color maps. First edition of this classic account of a voyage to the island of Trinidade off the coast of Brazil in search of a buried treasure. Edward Frederick Knight was an English barrister and author of sailing handbooks. His quest for the buried treasure was based on a dying sailor's confession of a buried Peruvian treasure on the island. He advertised for paying volunteers who would share in any profits reaped and in 1889 his crew of 13 set sail for the island in the 64-foot cutter "Alerte". Many of the crew had little if any nautical experience. The book is illustrated with two handsome color maps of Trinidad and Salvage Islands as well as numerous black & white plates. Knight's book was a favorite of British children's author, Arthur Ransome, and was the main inspiration for his novel "Peter Duck". A very good copy with some light tanning and wear to the text. The frontispiece has some chipping to the bottom corner and the front flyleaf is lacking. The binding is in good condition with some soiling and wear to the covers. The spine is creased at the top and a bit darkened. A scarce book. N° de ref. de la librería
