Clipperton: A History of the Island the World Forgot
by Skaggs, Jimmy M.
Clipperton Island is one of the most obscure, isolated islands on earth although it is primarily based on guano (bird droppings) lying 670 miles South West of Acapulco. Despite this it has captured the imagination of many famous people including Emperor Charles V, Napoleon III, Mexican President Porfirio Diaz, Italian King Victor Emmanuel III and assorted pirates, cast-aways, adventurers, scientists and sailors. Here is told the entire and fascinating history of this strange coral atoll. First edition. An exceptional copy. Walker, 1989. First Edition. Near Fine/Near Fine. (Inventory #: 2196292)
