Product description

Macmillan ad Co, 1884. First Edition. 265pp., pale green pictorial cloth, stamped in black and gilt. A boys' adventure story set on a Pacific island, unremarkable but for the fact that COPAC records just one copy (at the Bodleian) and that it seems to be the first book wholly illustrated by Hugh Thomson, newly arrived in London from Ireland to work on Macmillan's English Illustrated Magazine. St Johnston lived for a while in Australia, worked as a government official in Fiji where he recorded some valuable observations on cannibalism, and died young in 1891. This is his first book. This book is still intact although a black facing page is loose. There is water damage to the front and back covers (see picture) and a tear to the black page in the back.

Oxfam Books & Music Olney

Welcome to Oxfam Books And Music Olney, situated just off the market square in Stanley Court opposite the Co-op. Come and browse our extensive selection of books, music, DVDs, computer games and cards. In our shop you can discover a great range of material from the latest modern fiction to classic literature and vintage LPs. We are always happy to receive your donations of books or music, and you can choose to Gift Aid them to Oxfam. We might also be able to collect particularly large donations - just ask. We are always interested in hearing from people who wish to volunteer with us. Just pop in to collect an application form.

Could you help us by collecting donations from donors homes? Our shop receives many offers of generous donations that we have to turn down as we do not have volunteers able to collect. We would ask you to collect in your own car, at your convenience and reimburse your petrol costs. It might be a couple of times a month and would make a really big difference to our ability to make money.
