Rebel Destiny:

Description

“In the heart of the Dutch Guiana Bush, far up the Suriname River, lives one of the strangest communities in the world. Its inhabitants are the descendants of Negro slaves who rebelled against their Dutch masters more than a century and a half ago and fled to the bush that lies to the north of the Amazon basin.” (dust-jacket commentary)

Description

First edition, royal 8vo., 15 photographic plates, map endpapers, original cloth, a fine copy, dust-jacket by Harold Breul, slight fraying with resultant minor loss to corners and spine-ends, one small closed tear, light dust-soiling, but overall an attractive example, seemingly rare in such condition.
