Spine sun, cover scratches, two 1937 owner's signatures, otherwise light wear. Solid hardcover. ; "... there is one last frontier! The road is a charted path over a sparkling sea, its limitless horizon is broken with statuesque clouds, harried by trade winds, and its countries are islands and atolls flung like multicolored jewels beneath skies perpetually blue. There romance waits and there time pauses while man claims his inalienable right - the pursuit of happiness! The South Seas, a diadem that curves from Honolulu to Tahiti; jade islands, sapphire-set; coral atolls, bathed in brilliant sunshine; tropical forests, cathedral quiet; hidden pools, reflecting the bright silver moon; lagoons, where little sloops bob restlessly, their white sails distended with the breeze that ripples the shimmering water." Seven basic maps included. Delightful interwar tourist handbook for new travel destinations in the South Seas, with added information for women travelers. ; 435 pages.
