'Sailing Sunny Seas' is an unconventional account by Ella Wheeler Wilcox of brief journeys in Jamaica, Porto Rico, Honolulu, the West Indies, and other regions of constant Summer. The sketches are full of the picturesque personality and the ardent temperament of their author and they give vivid and often intimate pictures of the scenes and the varied phases of life in the semi-tropical islands which she visited. It goes without saying that she saw many things whose philosophical aspects interested her deeply and moved her to discussion. The book is fully illustrated with photographs by the author.' - New York Times Book Review February 26, 1910, p. 111. Good original decorative hardcover with small pictorial label pasted on front cover. Covers slightly worn. Small colored felt-tip mark on top edge. Bookplate has been removed inside front cover.
