Product description

Dragon International Independent Arts, London, 2010, First edition. Hardback, bound in black cloth with title in gilt on spine; 8vo., 336 pp + Author's Note and 1 pp of publisher's catalogue; illustrated D/J. Book condition: As New, signed by Author; D/J condition: As New, not price clipped. Shipwrecked on an unknown shore their greatest peril came from within. June 1629. Laden with treasure and the riches of Europe, the merchantman "Batavia", flagship of the Dutch East India Company, sails on her maiden voyage from Amsterdam bound for the East Indies. But thirty miles off the coast of Terra Incognita Australis - the unknown south land - she smashes into an uncharted reef. The survivors - women and children, sailors, soldiers and merchants - are washed ashore on a pair of uninhabited, hostile islands, with little food or fresh water. Desperately seeking help, the ship's officers set out in an open boat to make a two-thousand mile journey to the nearest trading post. While they are gone, from the struggle for survival on the islands, there emerges a tyrant whose brutal lust for power is even deadlier than the reef which wrecked the "Batavia".
