1826 The Pleasant and Surprising Adventures of Robert Drury, During His Fifteen Years' Captivity on the Island of Madagascar
What Our Customers Say...
Publishers' Original Binding
The exciting memoir of Robert Drury, recounting his fifteen years spent in captivity in Madagascar.
Drury was shipwrecked on Madagascar at the age of 17, this work being one of the oldest written historical accounts of Southern Madagascar when published in 1729.
After returning to England in 1717 his work became an instant success, though he later returned to Madagascar to become a slave trader. He also may have became a pirate for some time.
With a vocabulary on the Madagascar language to the rear.
In the original publisher's cloth binding, rebacked with the original boards and spine restored. Externally, smart. Light rubbing to the boards and spine. Minor bumping to the extremities. A few light marks to the boards. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright and clean with just a few odd spots.
Very Good Indeed
