Author Name    Hough, Richard.

Title   CAPTAIN BLIGH & MR CHRISTIAN: THE MEN AND THE MUTINY.

Publisher    E.P. Dutton, New York, 1973, first edition.

Seller ID   24068

320 pp, large 8vo (9 1/2" H), hard cover in dust jacket. Map endpapers, b&w plates, drawings, maps. "The main outline of the mutiny is widely known and usually seen in strong blacks and whites. It is only through the author's painstaking scholars hip and reinterpretation of the major characters that the classical quality of this saga takes on a new meaning. Mr. Hough's research took him on prolongued journeys from Christian's birthplace to the other side of the world where Christian' s d e a t h and Bligh's miraculous open-boat escape occurred. For the first time Christian is seen as a troubled and guilty man, proud but soft beneath the skin. Bligh, who had been Captain Cook's brilliant navigator and inadvertent assassin, em er g es a s a co urageous but uncertain leader out of touch with the needs of his men....(This book) throws new light on the relations between Bligh and Christian, on Bligh's voyages to the Pacific, and his incredible journey to New South Wales." Lig ht wr ink li ng at top/bottom of spine, minor fading at top/bottom edges of boards. Dust jacket has very light edge wear/wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, soiling around edges of flaps, minor rubbing. Very Good/Very Good
