  • A Lady's Cruise in a French Man-O-War

    C. F. Gordon Cumming. 2 Volume set. Published 1872. $100.00

    A Lady’s Cruise in a French Man-of-War was published in 1872 and recounts the south sea voyages of Constance Frederica Gordon-Cumming. Told from her own viewpoint, Gordon-Cumming writes about her time spent in Fiji where she falls in love with the isles. At the end of two years she accepts a unique and exceptional opportunity and prepares for the cruise of a lifetime. Written in a series of journalistic letters, Gordon-Cumming writes about her experiences on the cruise in a French man-of-war, the Seignelay.

    Note. This 2 volume set is over 140 years old and in need of bookbinding and some TLC.
