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.
