"Captain Marion is the story of the killing of Captain Marion du Fresne by the Maoris of North Auckland in 1772. It was written by Alexandre Dumas as one of four pieces under the title 'Drames de la Mer,' and seems to be largely based on Crozet's log. This translation, the only one in English, is by F. W. Reed, the Dumas authority, and it now appears in print for the first time." - from the dust wrapper blurb. ; 8vo. Bookseller Inventory # 6916
