First UK edition, first issue (which possibly precedes the US edition which was published as "Following the Equator" in November 1897). Original burgundy blind-stamped cloth with titles in gilt to the upper board and spine. A lovely near fine clean and bright copy, the binding with minimal rubbing to the edges, the contents clean and without previous owner's inscriptions. Small stationer's blind-stamp to the front free endpaper. With the publisher's 32 page catalogue dated September 1897 to the rear. An excellent copy.
