Titel: IN THE HEART OF PERU, With Illustrations by ...
Verlag: Printed at the Free Lance Office [for the author], Wellington
78pp 8vo original boards. The book was stapled not sewn and the staples are slightly rusty - but the book remains sound. ***A very scarce book - two recorded copies in New Zealand libraries and none known elsewhere. Printed for the author who gave copies away to friends. This copy has a presentation slip in his hand to Hon. C.H. Izard, M.L.C. ***Some general remarks on Peru but the interest of the book lies in Wilson's account of the COYA: as a young man in 1893 Wilson was in charge of the reassembly and launching on Lake Titicaca of the ship COYA ( 546 tons and 170 feet long) which had been built by William Denny and Brothers of Dumbarton on the River Clyde then disassembled for delivery.
