Original bright red cloth on boards. Price-clipped DJ nicked at foot and worn head and foot. The Lutine bell is a part of the history of Lloyd's shipping industry. The bell is rung once to mark a ship which is lost, and twice for a safe arrival. The story concerns a Greek ship, the Amphitrite, overloaded with ore and heading out from Norstad into the Norwegian Sea. The American crew is already mutinous from various causes, and their anger is brought to bear on Mavros, the captain. 215 pp. View more info
