The Strange Adventures of a House-Boat
1893, the story of a house-boat on the Thames, with a hand-drawn bookplate
New edition. Hardback, bound in the original green cloth with gilt titling to spine. 18 × 11.5cm, 442pp.
First published in 1888, this is the tale of a house-boat on the Thames in late Victorian times.
A good reading copy. The binding is a little cocked and the cloth rubbed but the book remains in good readable condition. A nice addition is a hand-drawn bookplate to the front pastedown, dating from 1896.
