A series of short stories, 23, of stories, both fictional and non-fiction, set in the South Seas. The first story being an account of picking up of the ship wrecked sailor Alexander Selkirk off the island of Juan Fernandez, in the Pacific ocean – Alexander Selkirk being more famous and known as Robinson Crusoe in the 1700s, then there are fictional stories by such authors as Herman Melville and Robert Louis Stevenson.

There is a red faux silk place marker which shows fraying at the end. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. 411, [1] pages,. Please refer to accompanying picture (s). Quantity Available: 1.
