Book Description Harper, New York, 1854. Cloth. Condition: Very Good. First Edition. xvi, 493 p. incl. front. (port.) 19 cm. A remarkably nice copy of a rare early travel account to Hawaii. There is very, very slight wear to the head and tail of the spine. The biggest flaw is discoloration to the endpapers from the original glue and slight foxing to the subsequent two or three pages. The text block itself is nearly fine. Seller Inventory # 005493
