About this Item

This is a VG hardcover 8th edition in green decorated cloth binding with blind stamping and gold lettering on the cover and spine, no DJ. Floral endpapers. Moondyne is an 1879 novel by John Boyle O'Reilly, which was made into a film of the same name in 1913. It is very loosely based on the life of the Western Australian convict escapee and bushranger Moondyne Joe. John Boyle O'Reilly was a Fenian revolutionary who was transported as a convict to Western Australia. During his time in Western Australia's penal system he would have heard many stories of Moondyne Joe's exploits, although it almost certain that the two men never met. After only thirteen months in Western Australia, O'Reilly escaped the colony on board the American whaling ship Gazelle. On arrival in America he settled in Boston, where he established himself as a respected journalist, newspaper editor, novelist and poet. (From Wikipedia.). Bookseller Inventory # 048619
