A series of stories set in the Fiji group of South Sea islands
First edition, first printing hardback bound in the original blue cloth with gilt titling to spine and upper board. 20 × 13cm, 295pp + ads.
A loosely connected collection stories, some with minor supernatural and criminal elements all set in the Fiji group of South Sea islands and illustrated with eight black and white plates. The author, Basil Thomson, was a British intelligence officer, police officer, prison governor, and colonial administrator in the Pacific islands.
This copy is in very good condition, with very minor bumping to the corners and light and intermittent foxing throughout. On the whole, a nice bright example.
