About This Item

London: T. Nelson and Sons, 1887. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good. Inscribed by the author on a prefatory blank leaf. "Inglis was a missionary stationed in the New Hebrides Islands; he was based at Aneityum. His book covers every aspect of life on the islands, from observations on the terrain to local ceremonies and festivities. Also included are biographical sketches of some of the missionaries who first brought Christianity to those islands" (Hill 866).

Octavo: xvi, 352 p. with a map and a portrait plate. The erratum is tipped in before the rear flyleaf. Original blue cloth binding, with gilt titles and ruled borders. Faint label shadow to the front flyleaf, with some general dust staining to the top edge. The spine is lightly sun faded, with a bit of wear to the corners and tips and some minor spotting; otherwise very good.
