Original blue cloth, lettered in gilt, with blindstamped design of wavy lines on front board; green-and-white patterned endpapers. Minimal scuffing, a few faint marks, very good. Wolff [5539/60] held two other titles by Harding, as "Ouidiana". Sadleir [p288] notes that Harding was Ouida's childhood playmate (and son of her adored godmother) and that he was the source of much of Sadleir's Ouida collection. In his own right Harding wrote some 5 or 6 nautical novels. Jack Stapleton is set in the West Indies. Scarce.
