TRELOAR, W.P. - The Prince of Palms.

 1391686894,
London, Sampson Low &c [1884]. Elegantly slender octavo publisher's dark green cloth, front cover decorated & titled in gilt (a touch flecked); 50pp, colour frontispiece, wood engraved illustrations through the text, some full page. A rather good copy of this appealing book. Inscribed and signed by Treloar. ¶ Treloar's father had published a pamphlet with the same title "about forty years ago" (in 1852 actually) with the object of publicising his new industry of cocoa-nut fibre mats and matting. The Treloars have done pretty well with coconuts as W.P. is Sir William Treloar Bart. The view of acres of their works at Southwark illustrates well enough the extent of their success and he has in turn published this paean to the enriching nut, updating and giving an account of the industry around the world.
