Pitcairn. The Island, the People and the Pastor. To which is added a Short Notice of the Original Settlement and Present Condition of Norfolk Island
London, 1859 (tenth edition). Duodecimo, with the frontispiece and 14 plates (but lacking the portrait of Thursday October Christian facing page 128). Later synthetic cloth (dark green 'Mackaness morocco'); light scattered foxing; mild signs of use and age; a very good copy. With the 'Bountiana' bookplate of Dr George Mackaness, historian, bibliophile and Bligh biographer. Although this copy is defective, it is a commonplace title, so the missing plate can be found. However, its value lies in the extensive annotations by Dr Mackaness on approximately 165 pages of the book.
