“A spirited tale of adventure in almost every island of the Pacific, and an excellent account of the troubles in Taiti and its annexation by the French. Lucatt visited the Bay of Islands, Auckland, New Zealand, the Hawaiiian Islands, Pitcairn Island, the Philippines, and San FRancisco .. contains a very unflattering account of San FRancisco and Sacramento during the height of the gold rush.” (Hill).


First edition. 2 volumes in 1, 8vo., xii, 351; xi, 371 pp., 4 lithographs printed in colours. Original blue pebble-grained cloth gilt, neat repairs to extremities, a very good example.
