BLACKBIRDING. - Correspondence Respecting the Natives of the Western Pacific and the Labour Traffic.

London 1883. Foolscap modern wrapper with printed label; vi,191pp and map. ¶ Correspondence from 1877 to March 1883. There is a fair bit of concern about natives being supplied with guns and more alarm about outrages and atrocities committed by natives than upon them. Included is Commodore's Wilson's 1882 report, Labour Trade in the Western Pacific, which in turn includes a paper by Miklouho-Maclay, damning reports by Doctors Wray and Thompson on the "excessive mortality" on the Cran & Co. sugar plantation at Maryborough (Queensland), quantities of hard detail and a final paper by Romilly on the sale of guns and liquor in the western Pacific.
