Aubrey (Frank) [Frank Atkins]The Devil Tree of El Dorado. A Romance of British Guiana. With Illustrations by Leigh Ellis and Fred. Hyland. Third Edition. cat40a London: Hutchinson, (1896). Third Edition. Dark brown pictorial cloth designed and lettered in light brown and gilt. Black coated end papers. Frontispiece and 7 inserted plates. The cloth has split along the rear hinge, and cracked at the top of the spine, where it has been carefully repaired. Some discoloration to edges of end paper, a stain to the lower blank margins of about 100 pages in the middle of the book, very good otherwise. On the whole, a very fresh and quite attractive copy despite these features. A lost race novel of the lost city of Manoa; immortality, a carnivorous tree. A classic in the field.
