The Archipelago on Fire.
London: Sampson Low, Marston & Company,
Reprint edition*. (iv), 198pp, (i) (undated publishers'list), with illustrated title page plus a frontis and 5 other illustrations. Old ownership stamp to front pastedown, and a couple of minor soil marks to prelims: contents otherwise clean. Front endpaper partially split at hinge, but board not wobbly. In the original carmine pictorial cloth printed in black and blue with Pears soap advertisement on the back. Boards fairly bright, spine dulled but legible, slight bubbling of cloth, extremities bumped. Good copy of a book scarce in any form. [*The first edition of 1886 has 50 plates. It is not clear whether this copy is from the first or a later printing of the cheaper edition. Unlike the reprint in the British Library (which is putatively dated 1896), this one is dated (1894), and does not describe itself as a 'new and cheaper edition'.]
