BOSTOCK, Trevor. Victorian Adventure. (London) : Tom Stacey, (1972). First Edition. Pp [1]-224. Illustrated. Large 8vo, maroon cloth, gilt lettering to spine. “This fascinating collection of stories, many taken from contemporary magazines, mirrors Victorian life at its most colourful.” - from the dj. Includes “Pirate Hunting in China” by Admiral J. Moresby from The Wide World Magazine (December 1898), pp 105-118, with 6 illustrations. “Piracy on a large well organised scale continued in Chinese waters long after it had been stamped out elsewhere; and unorthodox indeed was the action of the British Government in dealing with it, paying as they did bounty money of £10 per head – until the heads became too numerous.” Very good in slightly torn, unclipped dustjacket. 16.00
