WALSH, M.C. - The Golden Idol. A tale of adventure in Australia and New Zealand.

Chicago, Donahue Henneberry 1891. Octavo, very good in publisher's green cloth stamped in blind; frontispiece. ¶ Only edition it seems, though there is nothing American about this book except the imprint. Classed as a lost race novel but this race is so thoroughly lost they don't make an appearance; it's their treasure that is hunted and all we meet are some anonymous dusky savages. I suspect Walsh was a bit of a sook:- "As Holcroft had an exceedingly bad headache, they did not travel fast ... the constant roar of the rushing water had given Rex and Holcroft bad headaches ... they were soon chilled through, and as a matter of course their sufferings were severe ... Holcroft suffered much from rheumatism ... for the nights were exceedingly cold ... Holcroft began to feel a touch of the fever ... but fortunately Hawley happened to have some of the Elixer of Yucca ...". A tale of adventure in Hypochondria I think. Still, there are plenty of thrills, a murder, a wicked conspiracy and the lost finally re-united.
