By: Kingston, W.H.G.

Price: $300.00 USD

Quantity: 1 available

Book Condition: Good Plus


Original blindstamped red cloth on boards. Volume II only of a two-volume set. No writing. Mild hand soil to cover, and faint foxing spots to endpapers. In internet reviews, Kingston is rebuked for stating "eight knots an hour", when a knot is a sea mile per hour, making Kingston's reference to time redundant. In another, the comment is made that Kingston referred offhand to the prevalence of illegitimacy in this travelogue through northern Portugal. Only in 1851 did Kingston publish the first of the adventure stories for boys that made him famous. Volume II has 364 pp.
