1 Ballantyne, R.M. Blown to Bits or The Lonely Man of Rankata (A Tale of the Malay Archipelago)
London James Nisbet & Co. 1889 First Edition (No Additional printings) Hard Cover Good Plus No Jacket The Author 
Fully illustrated red cloth on boards. Minor corner and edge wear, and lightly cracked hinges. Gift note dated 1889. In the words of a reviewer for The Academy, this is Ballantyne's best work. Much more than a novel for juveniles, it provides an all-round understanding of the 1883 explosion of the Krakatoa volcano. There is romance and comic relief, too, as Nigel meets Winnie. It might best be described as one of those "shots heard around the world." 438 pp.
