Descripción

Sm. 8vo., Eleventh Edition, with an engraved frontispiece, 14 engraved plates and an engraved chart, contemporary signatures on front endpapers; original brown diced cloth, boards elaborately blocked in gilt and blind, backstrip blocked in pictorial gilt, yellow endpapers, neatly rebacked, a remarkably bright, clean copy in publisher's original pictorial binding. With 4pp publisher's catalogue bound in at end, and the binder's ticket of Trickett & Son on rear paste-down. With a relevant postcard and cutting loosely inserted. First published in 1853, this is arguably the best mid-nineteenth century account of the aftermath of the mutiny. Its publication was stimulated by a resurrection of public interest in the 'Bounty' saga following the visit to England in 1850 of the Pitcairn Pastor George Nobbs. The work includes considerable detail on the fate of the mutineers, their descendants and the present population; this edition benefits from 'additional intelligence respecting Pitcairn and the Islanders'. The Society continued to published the wortk in various editions until the early years of the twentieth century. Scarce in any early edition. N° de ref. de la librería 13353
