THE VOYAGES, DANGEROUS ADVENTURES AND IMMINENT - William Rufus Chetwood] Richard - 1720. [1276450]
London: printed for W. Chetwood, at Cato’s Head, in Russel-Street, Covent-Garden ; T. Jauncy, at the Angel without Temple-Bar ; A. Bettesworth, in Pater-Noster-Row ; J. Brotherton, W. Meadows in Cornhill ; and J. Graves, in St. James’s-Street, 1720. First Edition. Full Leather. Octavo. [4], vii-viii; 72; 136; 179, [1] p. Engraved frontispiece; rubricated title page; late 18th century polished calf boards with perimeter of boards rolled in blind; nicely rebacked in 19th century calf blind tooled with titling in gold; boards have been tastefully reattached; spine darkened; boards rubbed at the extremities; engraved bookplate of parliamentarian Henry B.B. Beaufoy on the front pastedown; below his plate is a 20th century bookseller catalog listing pasted down; foxing and toning throughout. In addition to being a notable publisher and bookseller, Chetwood was a prolific novelist and playwright. Falconer's Voyages is most certainly his work. It was remarkably popular and reprinted often throughout the 18th and 19th centuries. Howes remarks: “Tremendous—but undoubtedly imaginary— adventures.” Uncommon.
