2 Hume (Fergus) The Expedition of Captain Flick. A Story of Adventure.
cat40a 
NY: New Amsterdam Book Company, 1899. Brown pictorial cloth, front cover designed in pink & dark blue, lettered in gilt; spine designed in green & black, lettered in gilt. Floral end papers. Jarrold & Sons imprint at base of spine, and Jarrolds device in blind on back cover. Frontispiece & 2 inserted plates. 4 pages of ads for Jarrolds books at rear. Cloth torn at upper spine and inexpertly repaired, some shelf wear to edges and tips, cloth a bit soiled, very good otherwise. An American issue of a London, Jarrold & Sons edition, with an American title page. The first edition was published by Jarrold in 1896, and had no illustrations. There was also a Colonial Edition published by Macmillan in 1896. We believe this to be the first American edition, though we have heard a rumour of an American 1899 edition with New York, Jarrold, title page. It is likely derived from the 1899 Jarrold edition, the 'Fifth Thousand', which was illustrated. A lost-race tale, of a race of classical Greek origin on an island in the South Pacific.
