Collingwood, Harry: The Strange Adventures of Eric Blackburn v1 20 mar 2009
This book has already been uploaded by tsgreer here. As this is a major upgrade: (TOC, illustrations, pagebreaks, etc.), I will post this in the Mobi format also..
This is a nice example of early trivial literature:
"The first edition of this book is dated 1922. The edition used is dated 1922. The publisher was Blackie and Son Limited, London, Glasgow, Bombay. The number of pages is 309.
We found the original publisher’s blurb for this book:
In Chapter I the reader is introduced to Eric Blackburn, fourth officer of the ill-fated “Saturn”, and hero of this story. The s.s. “Saturn” is overtaken in mid-ocean by a sudden and irreparable disaster, Blackburn being the sole survivor. Picked up by a sailing ship, the castaway finds himself elevated to the position of skipper, and joins in a search for hidden treasure. The search is successful, but on its way to port the ship is wrecked on an uncharted island.
Blackburn and the dead captain’s son reach land safely, and while exploring have many adventures and experiences. They become acquainted with a savage king, to whom they render aid in repelling attacks by huge apes which are a continual menace." (www.athelstane.co.uk)
This book was first published in 1922.
