very good condition in the dust-jacket 


originally published in 1931 as "Vanished Fleets, ships and men of old Van Diemen's land [Tasmania]", this Nautilus Library edition is quite a scarce little book in its own right.

But this unique copy contains a signed inscription from Villiers in which he claims the edition, to be unauthorised, grossly mis-edited, and of which he had no prior knowledge of its publication.
