London, J. Clements, nd [c1841?]. First edition, first impression. Hardback. A very good copy. A penny dreadful presumably. Six numbers bound as one with a title page and an author's preface (dated 1831). Each part is numbered, and pagination continues between the parts though there are no prices on each part. The story takes starts with a slave ship being boarded by a pirate (Brulart, who seems to be white not black). Subseqent to this, a couple of years later I think, one of the slaves Attar Gull takes revenge on his captors, but suffers and dies cursing the white man. I suspect the inclusion of Brulart in the title of this 49 page piece is to bringing in the readers as the main bulk of the story is around Gull. Scarce, with no copies at auction since 1932. Recently rebound in 1/4 calf with marbled boards. The binding is new, so the description relates only to the text block. The leaves are mostly in excellent shape, with the inevitable ageing and tanning, a few leaves have a stain that doesn't affect the text's readability. There is some loss to text at the lower margin where the book has been trimmed at some point. [10854, Hyraxia Books].
