First edition, presentation copy, with note on front wrapper that this was presented to W.D. Alexander by the author (in Remy's hand?). "An interesting narrative of an expedition made to Mauna Loa, in June I853, by Jules Remy (a French national) and by Julius Brenchley (an Englishman), both of whom resided in the Islands from 1851 to 1855. The two gentlemen set out from Hilo for Kilauea volcano on June 13th, and from that area made their ascent of Mauna Loa, returning to Hilo on June 24th. They were accompanied by a large contingent of native Hawaiian porters, and had pack horses food and water, and a collection of scientific instruments. Remy's journal provides interesting geological and botanical notes and descriptions, and sometimes humorous observations on the Hawaiians who accompanied them" (Forbes 4394).
