Description: London, Blackie & Son. Hard Cover. Ill.: W.B. Wollen. 352 pp, 7 5/8" H. Dark blue cloth with beige and black lettering on spine and front board, illustration of mounted rider on front board and 'native' on spine in brown/beige/black/blue. Eight b&w plates (collated). No date, but 1908 written on front free endpaper. When a young lad, Reuben Whitney, finds he doesn't fit in to the expectations of early 19th century England, he boards the sailing ship 'Paramatta' for Australia. He joins the mounted police, helping to put down bush-rangers and native people and through a series of adventures, finds contentment. A product of its times, the story is not racially sensitive and might cause offence. Previous owner's name and date on verso of frontispiece, light browning to edges of text block, very small liquid mark on top of text block, wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, light edge wear, one very small corner bump, small sticker ghost mark on rear board, slight darkening to spine color. Very Good -.
