A Narrative of the Mutiny, on board His Majesty's Ship Bounty; and the subsequent voyage of part of the crew, in the ship's boat, from Tofoa, one of the Friendly Islands, to Timor, a Dutch settlement in the East Indies.
London For George Nicol 1790 - First edition. 4to., 4 folding maps and plans, 2 folding one map repaired at margin with minor loss, M2 with short tear in gutter not affecting text, modern red straight-grained morocco gilt, a very handsomely presented example. Bligh's Narrative (1790) is his own account of the famous mutiny on the Bounty, issued in haste, fully two years before his official account of the whole voyage, in an effort to preserve his reputation. Indeed, criticism of him was leavened by his astonishing account of his 3500 mile, two-month journey across the Pacific with his eighteen still-loyal crewmen in a twenty-three-foot open launch (only one life was lost). Hill (2004) 132; Ferguson 71; Parsons Collection 151; Sabin 5908a. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
