LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:
The Folio Society facsimile of the 1831 edition. 1976. 'Mr Barrow of the Admiralty' served the Royal Navy for fifty-five years as 'Second Secretary' and founded the Royal Geographical Society. Barrow studied all aspects of the H.M.S. 'Bounty' saga. The reason for the initial voyage to gather breadfruit was a serious matter and as such was entrusted to one of the navy's most senior officers, Captain William Bligh. Bligh was devastated to be cast adrift in the 'Bounty' longboat but his courage and skill saved the sailors with him. Bligh made it back to England and set out again in a different vessel to round-up the mutinous crew. At the Court-Martial Captain Bligh retained his reputation intact, he went on to greater glory, as did the mutineers except their glory was not on this earth.Near mint. Slipcased. Blue cloth covered end boards. 261pp. 220 x 130 mm
