346pp. Duodecimo [19.5 cm] Red pictorial cloth covered boards. Frontispiece illustration in color, plus five illustrated color plates. Good. The extremities are mildly sullied, rubbed and bumped. The front pastedown has a label from a Baptist Sunday School, and the free endsheets are darkened. The text block is cracked numerous times, and the pages are beginning to detach here and there. The illustration at p. 243 is completely detached, but laid in. There are very sporadic stains on the pages. All plates present.
Tom Bevan also wrote "Beggars of the Sea" and "The Insurgent Trail." This tale begins with a "Professor" who seems to have a second sight.
