With Illustrations by George W. Lambert. New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1905. Original green cloth with affixed illustration.
First American Edition of this "romance of a chivalrous Australian bushwhacker" [K&H]. Hornung had absorbed much of the local color for this book by spending the years 1884-86 in Australia, in an effort to cure his health. Included are numerous action-packed illustrations, most of them featuring horses, pistols or both. This copy is just about fine (private library label on the front paste-down, but very little wear).
