WOODROFFE. Joseph F. The Upper Reaches of the Amazon. London, Methuen, .
8vo. Original cloth, lettered in gilt, with the rarely seen blue two-tone dust-wrappers, map endpapers; pp. xvi, 304, 31, (publisher's catalogue), frontispiece with tissue guard, plates after photographs, very light fraying to head and tail of wrappers; light offsetting from endpapers, otherwise a very good copy in the rarely seen dust-wrappers.
First edition of 'an account of life in the Amazon forests and rubber plantations, written by one who speaks authority, having lived seven years in the country. The book should attract much attention, not only from the great financial interest in rubber, but for its wealth of curious information. The barbarities in this district have been described as worse than Putamayo' (front of wrappers).
