Life of Alexander Alexander

written by himself, and edited by John Howell

Edinburgh, William Blackwood and London, T.Cadell, 1830.

£195.00

1st edition. two volumes bound into one. frontispiece engraved portrait to volume one.

occasional foxing marks, but generally a good clean copy in a 19th century half calf binding, with just a very little wear and marking.

a tale of travel and naval adventure from the early 1800’s, supposedly written by Alexander himself and edited by John Howell, who had recently enjoyed success with similar works on a soldier of the 71st Regiment, and John Nicol, mariner. Alexander Alexander was born in the Ayrshire village of Dundonald and his travels took him to the West Indies and the Far East, and his memoir includes much on life on West Indian sugar plantations of the period.

a nice copy of this scarce book
