Recased, with original cloth--somewhat stained and faded--laid down. Some loss of original cloth along the joints, endpapers replaced. Binding tight, text clean. Hill 68: "This first edition was apparently the only authorized one. Barrow gives a most interesting account of the later fortunes of the mutineers; also an account of the voyage and wreck of the Pandora, bringing back the mutineers from Tahiti; the trial of the mutineers; letters written by Capt. Peter Heywood to his sister; and the discovery of John Adams and the Bounty descendants on Pitcairn Island." O’Reilly & Reitman 573.
