Original green cloth with a gilt palm tree on the front cover and a gilt title on the spine, some dulled. Some wear to the corners and spine ends and internal hinges cracked but solid. This binding is now protected by a clear, mylar sleeve. This intrepid woman accompanied her husband, Henry Forbes, to the far reaches of the East Indies islands at an age when that was not so common. Her descriptions are empathetic of very different cultures. SCARCE, with only one other copy on the internet as of this writing. Pages xii, 306 plus 24 pages publisher ads.
