Melbourne, Dunn [1885]. Octavo publisher's cloth; 124pp & errata slip. An excellent copy. ¶ 'England is once more a slave-holding nation!' A first hand account of investigations in Fiji and a savage attack on the officialdom of Fiji, the treatment of the Fijians, and the labour trade, with a comparative table of practices between the old slave trade and labour traffic customs. Lucas, emigre medico, reformer and later crackpot, invented the eponymous pawpaw ointment and wrote a pair of utopian novels, set in a future Brisbane, that I've never seen and would like to find.
