New Edition. Original sage-green cloth on limp boards, lettered and decorated in black on front board, in black and gilt on spine. Spine tips scuffed, signature (1899) on front free endpaper, inkspots on edge of spine, otherwise good. A good-humoured (and often comically free-wheeling) romance which moves from the tropical wilds of the Andaman Islands -- with depictions of colonial life in the East and adventures on land and sea -- to a decayed estate in southern Ireland -- with its humourous "characters", supposed ghosts and poachers, and the eccenticities of a mad inventor.
