The Falkland Islands: With notes on the Natural History by Rupert Vallentin

Category: Travel

Oxford, The Clarendon Press. 1924.


First edition; 8vo; original cloth boards and dust jacket, frontispiece, 35 plates and folding map to rear. The first full account of the Islands from their discovery until the Battle of the Falkland Islands in 1914. Bookplate of rare book collector and Orcadian John Davie Manson Robertson to front paste down. A near fine copy, with light spotting to the end papers and to the map at the rear and to the top of the text block.
