This author wrote, to my knowledge, two kinds of novels:
- mystery/detective, remarkable by a fine humour
- adventure, especially of the shipwreck/castaways sort.
This one is of the second kind, with a touch of the first in the plot: there is survival against nature's efforts and those of savages, mysterious map of the island, previous crime, and even romance ... of the kind adequate to the year 1903.
The text comes from Project Gutemberg, with illustrations. Corrected and formatted, thanks to Calibre and Sigil.
