Book Description D. Appleton, 1925., New York:, 1925. 8vo. xvi, 268 pp. 52 photo illustrations, including the frontispiece, index; foxed. Gilt and blind-stamped blue cloth; extremities rubbed, boards showing, soiled. AUTHOR INSCRIPTION on half title, "To Mrs. Austin James In memory of many happy hours from the author. . ." Very good. First American edition. Unusual account of a female explorer in the 1920's, covering life among Native Indian and Mongolian groups living on the Panamanian coast, specifically the San Blas and the Chucunaque tribes. Lady Richmond Brown was daughter of Robert Roussel of Rohais, Guernsey, Channel Islands. She married Sir Melville Richmond Brown (1866-1944), 3rd Bt., son of Sir William Richmond Brown, 2nd Bt. and Emily Mountsteven, on 27 February 1906. However, the marriage lasted only briefly, probably because Sir Melville declined into a mental infirmity. In 1909 Lilian petitioned for judicial separation [National Archives. Item J77/987/9984] and in 1910 Sir Melville was judged to be insane and his affairs placed in the hands of a 'Master in Lunacy'. In 1929 Sir Melville, through his 'guardian', petitioned for divorce, citing F. Mitchell-Hedges as co-respondent [National Archives. Item J77/2699/3804]. The marriage was formally annulled by Mr. Justice Bateman on 10 November 1930, with costs against the co-respondent [The Times, 11 Nov. 1930]. Lady Richmond Brown was a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society, Zoological Society, Linnean Society and Royal Anthropological Institute of Great Britain and Ireland. â" Howgego.
