This fascinating book was first published in 1796 under the title: Letters from Mr Fletcher Christian Containing a Narrative of the Transactions on Board His Majesty's Ship Bounty Before and After Mutiny, With His Subsequent Voyages and Travels in South America. The Letters of Fletcher Christian is a fine facsimile of an original 1796 copy.'My ships' company now consisted only of ten men, myself included; with each his mistress, and four young girls, sisters to some of them, who could not be persuaded to stay behind. So many women in a ship was a very unfavourable circumstance; but I had no alternative, either to take them with us, or remain where we were; and, as I was determined to quit the island at all events, I believe I should have been tempted to takes their whole stock of females, rather than my intentions should have been frustrated.' – excerpt from printed letters facsimiled in this fine bound edition.
