RUSSELL, W. CLARK. - The Romance of a Transport.

NY, Cassell, 1893. Octavo publisher's decorated green cloth blocked in green and gilt. A rather good copy. ¶ First edition; the English edition with it's better known title, 'The Convict Ship', appeared in 1895. A thriller, detailing the adventures of a young woman who joins a convict ship dressed as a boy to accompany her wrongly convicted love to Australia, their escape and search for truth and vengeance; plenty of death and villainy flavoured with salt water and tobacco juice as you would expect from Russell. This American original was unspotted by Miller/Macartney. Trove finds two copies in Australian libraries, presumably added since Macartney's work.
