"This is an examination of what was at best a youthful indiscretion, at worst a willing participation in cold-blooded murder. The events described in this book mainly took place in the South Seas between June 1871 and May 1872. What led up to them is also described, as the repercussions of the Brig Carl's two blackbirding expeditions -- the most lasting of which was, perhaps, that the world gained an eminent scientist and surgeon in the person of Professor Archibald Watson, FRCS, etc etc. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
