An early account of the mutiny onboard HMS Bounty is expected to raise over £5,000 at an auction, it emerged today.
The book was written by Captain Bligh two years prior to his full account of the voyage and comes from a private collector in Scotland.
The book has an Australian stamp in it and the owner of the book, a Mr DJ Hume, can trace his family back to the explorer Hamilton Hume who was born in Parramatta, New South Wales on June 18 1797.
