AN ACCOUNT OF THE EUROPEAN SETTLEMENTS IN - [Burke, Edmund, et al (attributed to - 1760. [1277814]
London: R. and J. Dodsley, 1760. Two volumes. [10],3-324,[10]; [14],3-308pp., plus two folding maps. Contemporary speckled calf, gilt, gilt leather label. Scattered foxing. Near fine. The authorship of this work, at least in terms of primary credit, still remains open, with William Burke (Edmund's cousin) and Richard Burke (his brother) frequently being given credit as collaborators. Burke himself told Boswell that he only "revised" it. Whoever the ultimate responsible party, the work was nonetheless extremely popular, frequently reprinted and translated. The two maps (whose re-engraved state in this edition constitutes its chief "improvement") are general maps of North and South America. HOWES B974. CLARK I:208. TODD 4c. HILL, p.39. SABIN 9282. PALAU 37503.
