BLIGH, William.

BLIGH, William.

Rare books by William Bligh, including first editions and signed first editions of A Narrative of the Mutiny on Board His Majesty’s Ship Bounty.

While his role in the mutiny may remain controversial, his status as one of the most brilliant seamen of the period ought not to be.
