BALLANTYNE, R.M. The Coral Island A Tale of the Pacific Ocean

Nelson, 1858.

First edition. 8vo. First issue binding of original blue ripple grain cloth decorated in gilt on the spine and upper cover. Colour vignette title page and frontispiece (in the second state) and six full page colour plates. A good copy which shows some wear to the cloth. Front hinge cracked and lacking rear endpaper.

The author's highlight and one of the scarcest and most celebrated books of nineteenth century children's and adventure literature.
