LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:
University of Hawaii Press, Honolulu - first edition, 1967. Hardcover, 9¾" x 6", with dust jacket. Ours is an ex-school-library copy in transparent protective covering, with stamps to endpapers only. VERY GOOD book in VERY GOOD dust jacket. Black cloth-bound boards with gold type to spine, with 11-page biography of Becke as Introduction. Louis Becke (1855-1913) was sometimes referred to as the "Kipling of the Pacific" as he conveyed the atmosphere of the South Seas as Kipling did of India. He spent two decades roving among the Pacific islands as supercargo on many an island vessel, becoming beachcomber, whaler, pearler, gold prospector, "blackbirder" and trader. This is a selection of his semi-autobiographical tales of wild adventures.
