About this Item

Black and white illustrations with gold tone. Gilt lettering on spine. Decorative front and rear end papers. Slip case has small splits at top and bottom opening. Book plate front end paper. In the Introduction, H. E. Bates tells of his first visit to the Pacific Island of Western Samoa and his visit to Valima, the home where Stevenson spent the last four years of his life and where he is buried. This Stevenson story is of a "trader who comes to take up a post on a black-beached island and is given a bare-breasted Polynesian girl in so-called marriage, together with the most cynical of marriage certificates to prove it, and then finds himself the centre of sinister and apparently supernatural dramas.".
