The Archipelago On Fire.

London: Sampson Low, Marston, Searle, and Rivington, 1888. [Historical Fiction] EARLY CHEAP EDITION. Octavo (19 x 15cm), pp.viii; 198 [34]. With fifty engraved plates, including a frontispiece, by Benett. Publisher's green cloth with gilt titles and black decoration to spine and upper. Yellow-coated endpapers. Gentle toning throughout; a strong tobacco scent. Some weakness to binding; a few gatherings a little proud. Unusually fresh and bright condition generally. Near fine. An adventure and romance set during the Greek War of Independence in the late 1820's, culminating in a showdown with Cretan pirates. First published in English in 1885, with this copy in broadly the same format, without colour-blocking, and even containing publisher's advertisements from that edition, dated October 1885.
