Drums of Mer – Ion Idriess – Signed by Publisher

Short Description

First published by Angus and Robertson in 1933. This is the seventh edition dated 1936. Inscribed by Walter Cousins head of the publishing house as a gift to Frances van Cleef, wife of a Chicago industrialist who was a close friend of the author.

Very good condition and in a very good example of the colourful dust jacket. Best copy we have seen of this elusive Idriess book.

The "Drums of Mer" captures the charm of the Torres Strait Islands. As usual great images to accompany an Idriess book. A selection of chapter titles gives one a feel ... When the Blood Lust calls; The Battle of the Fly; Velvet Claws; The Trouncing of Kebisu; Jakara Makes Love and The People of the Auwo Oromo. Mer (Murray Island) is sitting between Yule Entrance and Flinders Entrance closer to Papua New Guinea than Australia.

Rare Idriess superb writing signed by publisher ... super dust jacket

Price: $90.00
