Dick Sand: Or, A Captain at Fifteen. A Novel
New York, George Munro. 1878, 1878. FIRST ENGLISH LANGUAGE EDITION. 8vo. Pp324, with pp2 advertisements. Illustrated thoughout. Bound in publishers's mid green cloth, titled to spine in gilt, coated yellow endpapers. Neat ownership to flyleaf, some edgewear, small nick to joint. very good indeed. Dick Sands is a rather more serious and atypical Jules Verne travel adventure following the exploits of a young whale hunter and an entomologist. The novel deals primarily with the issue of slavery, and the African slave trade by other African Natives in particular.
