The Ebb-Tide A Trio and Quartette

London: William Heinemann, 1894. First Edition. Hardcover. A Very Good copy of the first English edition, first printing, of this novel written by Robert Louis Stevenson and his stepson, Lloyd Osbourne, being Stevenson's final novel, bound in the Publisher's original light-brown binding with the front board lettered and decorated in black and the spine lettered in black with the binding somewhat askew and showing some general wear including some rubbing through to the spine ends, the spine's left edge, and each board's leading corners as well as some small stains to the rear board. The work is centered on a trio of beggars who operate in the port of Papeete on Tahiti, being a failed English businessman, a disgraced ship captian, and a dishonest Cockney and their adventures on a schooner in route from San Fancisco to Sydney whose occupants have died from smallpox and that drifts into port with its load of "champagne". One of the three is hired to complete the ship's voyage and takes the other miscreants with him. They determine to steal the ship, sell the cargo, and not return to Tahiti and off they sail. Very good. Item #3488
