Hardcover in yellow cloth and non price-clipped publisher’s dust-jacket. 128 pages. Illustrated with photographs. First edition. “Biography of the nineteenth-century sea captain who introduced the banana to the United States by being the first to ship the fruit from Jamaica.” No previous ownership marks. Dust-jacket complete with no rips or tears, albeit some foxing to fore-edge at folds. Book is clean, square and internally unmarked with mild foxing to fore-edge, not affecting interior margins. Very good in a good dust-jacket.
