Christina, the Maid of the South Seas; a Poem
Printed by A. J. Valpy for F. C. and J. Rivington, London 1811 - x, 332p. Original paper boards, paper label on spine, uncut. "The poem is founded on the discovery of the settlement established on Pitcairn Island by some of the mutineers of the Bounty. The time occupied by the action is four nights and four days." Ferguson, 519. As a manuscript, the work was apparently read and corrected by James Burney who sailed with Captain James Cook and the proofs were corrected by Samuel Taylor Coleridge. The poem in four cantos is augmented with descriptive notes based on the works of Cook, Bligh, Bougainville and other early explorers. A lovely copy of this extremely scarce work. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
