THE BLACKBIRDER.

New York: Duell, Sloane, Pearce, (1943). First edition. SIGNED by Hughes. Blackbirding is the coercion of people to work as labourers. From the 1860s, blackbirding ships in the Pacific sought workers to mine the guano deposits on the Chincha Islands in Peru. In the 1870s, the blackbirding trade focused on supplying labourers to plantations, particularly the sugar cane plantations of Queensland, Australia and the nation of Fiji. (Wikipedia). Continuing in the last and current centuries. The book is near fine and the dust jacket has some minor wear on edges but is bright. SIGNED BY HUGHES.
