LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:
Harvill Press, publishers, London - first UK edition ISBN:000262804X, 1983. hardcover, 6" x 9¼", with dust jacket. Previous owner's signature to title page. VERY GOOD book in VERY GOOD unclipped dust jacket. Thirteen b&w illustrations. In June 1767, HMS 'Dolphin' sighted an unknown Pacific island, later known as Tahiti. The 'Dolphin' was followed years later by many other ships, English, French, Spanish, and American - some with famous captains - among them Louis de Bougainville, James Cook, and William Bligh of the 'Bounty'. Everyone loved the place and its friendly, generous people. The fatal shadow of new European diseases gradually fell across Utopia - as witnessed by Melville, Gauguin, and Robert Louis Stevenson.
