In Stevenson's Samoa

Product description

Written by Marie Fraser
Smith, Elder & Co - 1895, 2nd edition

Hardback book with no dustjacket
Very good condition, especially considering that it is 120 years old! Spine has faded to brown. Text / pages in very clean condition. No foxing, though some brown fading on first and back page. Pencil marks on back cover.

An interesting curiosity for those who are interested in Samoa, or for those interested in the life of R.L. Stevenson.
