JEANS, T.T., Staff Surgeon. Ford of H.M.S. Vigilant: A Tale of the Chusan Archipelago. Illustrated by William Rainey. L.: Blackie & Son, n.d. Pp 352, frontis., + 4 plates. 8vo, decorated red cloth. More edifying adventures for boys, this time in the form of imperial intrigue on the China Station. While the presentation of intercultural relations may be a little... insensitive, the main action is purported to be based on actual events: "Practically all the characters are drawn from life, and the cruisers and gunboats, British, American, and Chinese, taking part in the various operations are actual ships under altered names." Note: plate marked as being opposite p. 10 is actually opposite p. 16. Nick to head of spine, else a nice, bright, tight copy. 25.00
