Popular action-adventure story, set in Mexico first published in 1840. Would have appealed to teenage boys of the late nineteenth-early twentieth centuries. This is borne out by the School Prize gift plate, dated 1894 on the front pastedown. DESCRIPTION:8vo. Red pictorial cloth boards with gilt, green and black in design to front and spine. (No DJ ever issued). Frontispiece, tissue guard, internal illustrations, 444pp. Rare edition (often these elaborate, gilded editions were designed especially for school or Sunday-school prizes).
