From the cover: It is not surprising that A Pattern of Islands achieved a phenomenal success: its human qualities appealed to readers of all ages and nationalities. At the end of it the author wrote I borrowed £150 at the end of my leave to pay my way back to the Pacific and leave the family in funds until I arrived there. I did not see them again for seven years. But that is another story.

This is the other story: and it is a remarkable one. Sir Arthur returns, alone this time, not only to the friendship of the Gilbert and Ellice Islanders …

Very Good in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Plain paper dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded. A little age-spotting to the edges of the text block. Pages gently tanned with scattered spotting to the start and finish.
