Cat.No: 281545 Henry Hudson. Llewelyn Powys.

Henry Hudson

London: John Lane the Bodley Head Ltd, 1927. Hardcover. xiii, 213p., letterpress on laid-lined paperstock throughout, illustrations and maps (color-onlaid) as called for. Hardbound in 9x5.5 inch dark blue cloth boards titled gilt and decorated in blind, doublespread endsheet maps (two different ones, with red onlay). Untrimmed fore- and bottom-edges, a mildly edgeworn volume with one faintly-turned corner-tip, nicked top rim, completely unmarked within. A very good copy. Golden Hind series, Milton Waldman, series editor.

This series, intended for not-quite-up-to-Hakluyt scholars, seems not to have lasted in its appeal, which was biography of famous seamen with authorship by known-quantity writers like Waldman, E.F. Benson and a Powys or two.
