A Boy’s Voyage Round the World; including a residence in Victoria, and a journey by rail across North America.

London: John Murray, 1871.

First Edition.

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.
