Blown to Bits or The Lonely Man of Rankata (A Tale of the Malay Archipelago)

Publisher: London, James Nisbet & Co.: 1889

Edition: First Edition (No Additional printings)

Seller ID: 011837

Condition: Good Plus


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. View more info
