Return to Tahiti

Bligh's Second Breadfruit Voyage

by Douglas Oliver

Melbourne University Press, 1988, [First Edition], b/w frontispiece, colour illustrative plates, b/w illustrations, hardcover, dustjacket, ISBN 0522843549

Near Fine Condition, minor edge and shelf wear, 

'This book concentrates on the three-month sojourn in Tahiti, during which time Bligh diligently tended his ship, his crew and his potted plants - and looked about with curiosity.  Its focus is a worldly-wise Englishman's perceptions of an exotic culture.
Bligh's journal account of the Tahiti visit is reproduced in full.  Douglas Oliver, America's doyen of Pacific ethnographers, has made a judicious selection of excerpts from the journals of Bligh's fellow officers and added his own sage, and witty, editorial comment.'
