London: John Murray, 1871.
The surprisingly scarce first edition of this famous juvenile; Ferguson records only a later impression [Ferguson, 15755]. The attractive vignettes used as chapter-headings include rather good views of Melbourne and Sydney as well as Auckland, Honolulu and Niagara. Engaging travelogue filled with wonderful descriptions and adventures.Item #1620
