        A Chronicle of the Kings of England,

      London: printed by E. Cotes, for G. Saubridg, and T. Williams,, 1665. From the time of the Romans Government Unto the Death of King James Â… Whereunto is added, The Reign of King Charles the First, with A Continuation Â… in this Fourth Edition, To the Coronation of Â… King Charles the Second Â… Folio (343 x 212 mm). Contemporary English red morocco, gilt-tooled in a cottage-roof panel design with gilt-stamped supralibros (Clarendon) on both covers, edges gilt, from the workshop of Samuel Mearne. Housed in a burgundy flat back cloth solander box made by the Chelsea Bindery. Additional engraved title by W. Marshall, decorative woodcut initials, last leaf with longitudinal label. With 4 pp. contemporary manuscript notes laid in. Foot of spine chipped, extremities rubbed, small hole in pages 275 and 801 touching one letter, quire Rrr and a few other leaves browned, an exceptionally handsome copy. From the library of Edward Hyde, Earl of Clarendon, Lord Chancellor and chronicler of the English Civil War; a superbly apposite association, in a handsome binding from the Mearne workshop which was responsible for the most splendid gold-tooled bindings produced during the reign of Charles II. Clarendon's arms do not appear to have been part of the original binding design and they were probably added sometime before December 1667, when he went into exile for the second time. The book was presumably intended for the newly completed Clarendon House, which had what John Evelyn called "a very ample library" (reputedly numbering some 6,350 volumes). Baker's Chronicle was first published in 1643, two years before his death. It was reprinted posthumously with some revisions in 1653, and the third edition of 1660 has a continuation to the end of 1658 by Edward Phillips, John Milton's nephew. The account of Charles II's restoration, which first appears in this fourth edition, was attributed to General Monck's brother-in-law, Sir Thomas Clarges. Provenance: 1) Edward Hyde, Earl of Clarendon (1609-1674, Lord Chancellor, supralibros); 2) Henry Jeffery Flower, Viscount Ashbrook (engraved armorial bookplate); 3) Richard Dawson, First Earl of Dartrey (1817-1897, engraved armorial bookplate); 4) Viscount Mersey, Bignor Park (1840-1929, bookplate); 5) sold at auction, Christie's, 16 December 1991, lot 183 (through Bernard Quaritch) to Robert S. Pirie (bookplate).

        [four lines in Greek, then] Vetus testamentum graecum ex versione Septuaginta interpretum, juxta exemplar Vaticanum Romae editum.

      Cantabrigiae: Excusum per Joannem Field 12mo (14 cm; 5.5"). [1] f., 19, [1], 755 [i.e. 767, 1], 516 pp. (without the initial blank).. 1665 The second English edition of the Septuagint. There are different issues: This a copy of the one with the third word of the Greek title readiing "Diath?che" and not "Diath?ke" and with the printer's device showing the man holding the sun in his left hand. Thus, this is Darlow and Moule issue "B." => Thomas Jefferson owned a copy of one of the issues of this edition. Provenance: Manuscript ownership inscription of John Ray dated 1716 (on retained fly-leaf); ownership signature of Robert L. Wilson, New York, 1818 (on title-page); gilt supra-libros of Barzillai Slosson, dated 1829. Later in the Howell Bible Collection, Pacific School of Religion (properly released). Binding: American binding of dark blue goat, richly gilt, with wide floral border on covers and spine distinctively gilt using rules and floral roll. Board edges with a gilt roll; turn-ins gilt tooled. Marbled endpapers. All edges gilt. Gilt supra-libros of Barzillai Slosson as above. Unsigned. Barzillai Slosson may have been related to the lawyer of the same name who was active in Kent, CT, at the end of the 18th century and into the fourth decade of the 19th, whose account books are in the Yale Law Library; perhaps, the Barzillai who graduated from Columbia College in 1818 and later moved to Geneva, NY, where he was active and successful in business and civic affairs. Binding as above, lightly rubbed. Pages closely cropped in the 19th-century rebinding and some initial or final letters touched or lost. Very good.

En outre, le volume I ne contient pas le fleuron que l'on trouve sur l'originale, bien qu'il se trouve sur la page de titre du second volume ; le matériel typographique est sensiblement différent pour les pages de titre. Le premier volume contient 403pp. contre 501pp. pour l'originale, le second n'a que 493pp. contre 132pp. et 808pp pour le deuxième volume de l'originale. Il existe également une version en 3 volumes à l'adresse de Pierre Marteau à la même date. Ces différences entre les trois éditions ne sont pas élucidées. Reliures en plein chagrin vert ca 1850 signée Bruyère. Dos à nerfs orné de 3 petits fleurons, de filets à frois et à chaud. Titres et tomaisons dorées. Double filet d'encadrement sur les plats. Frise intérieure. Tranches dorées. Une bande éclaircie en haut du plat inférieur du tome I. Dos uniformément éclaircis, mais très bel exemplaire, parfaitement frais. Bassompierre fut emprisonné à la Bastille en 1631 pour avoir participé à la Journée des dupes ; il consacra sa détention de douze années à écrire ses mémoires (Journal de ma vie) puis ses ambassades, qui paraîtront en 1668. En plus d'être un des gentilshommes parmi les plus accomplis de son temps, Bassompierre poursuivit deux carrieres brillantes et parallèles sous Henri IV et Louis XIII, militaire et diplomatique. Ces mémoires ont toujours été particulièrement goûtés, elles portent le sceau de l'amertume de l'emprisonnement et sont l'oeuvre d'un grand gentilhomme français. Ex-libris aux armes du XIXe L. H.

FIRST FRENCH EDITION DOCUMENTING THE DUTCH IN CHINA A beautiful early work, magnificently illustrated, nearly 150 plates & engravings with extensive description of China. Nieuhoff was the chronicler and draftsman for the first Dut- ch Embassy there. In the mid-17th century, the Dutch were at the height of their power and wanted to gain trade access in the China Trade. In the face of great opposition they succe- eded in sending merchants to Canton. Nieuhoff made drawings during his travel to Canton & Peking, and were used to make the first engravings of China to be published in England. This work is the record of the Dutch Embassy's efforts in China. These efforts were thwarted by Portuguese Jesuit inrigues. * THE FIRST FRENCH EDITION: This First French edition consists of 290 pages of main text followed by: AVIS AUX CURIEUX. Copie d'une lettre ecrite en Batavie par NN. a Mr. N. Marchand de la ville d'Amfterdam, en date u 2. Feverier 1659, pp. 289-290. New pagination continues in the Seconde Partie: from page 1-134, with title: DESCRIPTION GENERALE DE L'EMPRIE DE LA CHINE. This is followed by a list of plates in parts I and II. * The illustrations depict all of the major cities,the flora and fauna, manners, dress & curiosities of China. With a beautiful and original folding map of China by Nieuhoff. A rich primary source for early meetings between the East and West. * The work and its map were done by Nieuhoff, then copper engraved by Hollar. The count of plates differ between the various editions. There are various ways to count the plates, there is no standard, we count them as 'full page' and as 'text plates' which seems logical. Some 'full page' plates actually have two illustrations on them. The actual location of some of the full-page plates will also vary, according to the "list of plates" issued with this book. This is entirely normal. *** This early account of China covers a wide variety of subjects including a large section on newly discovered plants, herbs and fruits of South China. It begins with a double page copper etched map of all China, Corea, part of Japan, Formosa, South to the Kingdom of Cannan [Annam or Viet-nam], Tartary. It includes and shows the outlined provinces with rivers noted, and the small cities along the great rivers; lakes, animals, flora and fauna. Additionally covers landscapes, views of villages, temples, people &c. * THE TEXT & COPPER-ETCHED PLATES: Major cities such as Canton, Nan-an, Kan-Chou, Nanking, Kiu Kiang, An King, Wuhu, Yang Chow are nicely illustrated and described. Peking also are carefully described and noted, with key & distance chart of miles. A meticulous description of the people, laws, customs, provinces given in much detail. The work is lavishly illustrated with fine examples. Each edition of this title had variant numbers of plates. These high-quality copper plates illustrate the manners, costume and customs of the Chinese. * This embassy was Europe's first attempt to open China to the west. A truly superb and marvelous primary resource. Stunning, documenting an important beginning in European contact and diplomatic history with China. Books of this period, size, and caliber have now become exceptionally scarce, and seldom found complete in excellent condition. * JAN NIEUHOFF [1618-1672] & THE DUTCH: Jan [John in English] Nieuhoff was the steward, chronicler and draftsman for the first Dutch embassy to China. In the mid-17 century, the Dutch were at the height of their power and decided to gain access to China and a share of the Chinese trade. After a great deal of Chinese opposition, the Dutch did manage to succeed in sending some merchants to test the trade waters of Canton. The drawings during Nieuhoff's travels of both Canton and Peking were also later used to produce the first engravings of China to be published in England. Interesting insights to both the Dutch and Chinese world views are revealed in the text. It took the Dutch embassy a long while to convince the Chinese that they had any homeland at all. The Chinese had been convinced they were sea nomads ! The lack of success of the Dutch was really a result of Portuguese Jesuit intrigues and had little to do with the behavior of diplomatic skills of the Dutch. This is a rich and revealing primary resource that reports on the important meeting between East and West. * Quoted from Dunne [see below] : "Interesting is Nieuhoff's description of the Shun-chih Emperor as he saw him at the imperial audience where the Dutchmen were received together with an embassy from the great Mogul;'A young man, white of skin, of medium size; rather ;plain, wearing a vest whch seemed woven from gold." page 348. Adam Schall was also present at this historic meeting and he spoke to the Dutchmen in German. * CONDITION: The book is now nearly 350 years old, as can be expected with any item of this age, there is always normal and usual minor scuffing, wear to the page corners, edges, occasional mild stains, transfer of ink, mends and other minor defects that are present in books of this age. If any were of major consequence, we would certainly point them out. By and large a nice copy of a very RARE book ! * The title page was printed in both red and black ink, as issued. * BIBLIOGRAPHY: * French Edition: Chadenat 140 H.

Im Drucke erschienen dann freilich nur 1665 und 1670 Bd. 1 und 2 mit den Einsiedlerurkunden, 1674 Bd. 5 über Pfäffikon, 1681 Bd. 14 über Ittendorf, 1695 Bd. 3 über St. Gerold, letzterer ohne Titel und Index. Die für den Gebrauch im Stifte bestimmten Exemplare erhielten neben den Seitenzahlen noch eigene gedruckte Signaturbezeichnungen, welche mit denjenigen des Archivs übereinstimmten.? Dies trifft auf die im vorliegenden Band neben den Seitenzahlen gedruckten Versalien A bis F (entsprechend den archivierten ?Capsulae? prima bis sexta) so zu, denn z.B. im Titel zum ersten Abschnitt heisst es ?Capsula prima qua continentur Bullae Pontificiae littera A. insingatae? - Inhalt : I.

Jahrhundert erhellen, wie z.B. aus der ?Engelweyhung gehalten Anno 1636? hervorgeht: ?Haben auch die Kraemer under dem Ochsen / und weiter hinab das Stand-Gelt geben müssen. Die Gesandte von Schweitz haben schier alle Diener gehabt / das vorhin nicht bräuchig gewesen. [.] Es ist ein grosser zulauff gewesen durch die gantze Engelweyhung hindurch.

(etc. B/p. 32 u. 34). Zu erwähnen sind zudem die Dokumente zu den (Rechts-) Streitigkeiten zwischen dem Kloster und dem Stand Schwyz : ?Da sich der Schwyzer Vogt nach 1424 immer wieder in die inneren Angelegenheiten des Klosters einmischte, blieben die Beziehungen bis ins 17. Jh. gespannt.? (HLS). Und eine seit Mitte des 15.

        - Scottish Peerage

      Scotland, 1665. Edinburgh, 23 December 1665. Manuscript letter dealing with land revenue for a Scottish Lord, scarcity of currency in Scotland, and a desperate circumstance of embezzlement on a West Indies ship with a cargo of cotton. The writer is unidentified, though he addresses Scottish politician Lord Cullenden (John Forbes, 3rd of Culloden 1609-1687). 8vo. 3 pages. Double leaf laid watermarked paper, measuring approximately 17,5 x 22,5 cm. Very good condition. Penned only fourteen years after the Wars of the Three Kingdoms, and twenty years after the Scottish Civil War, when the monarchy was ruled by Charles II, this letter reveals economic struggles of a reforming nation. Although a quiet era by comparison, money was scarce and people were heavily taxed, the writer evidently seeking to collect moneys for Lord Culloden. Several Scottish peers and politicians are named. The text also refers to early Scottish activity in the West Indies in connection with a corrupt politician in the Shetland Islands. Dating to the early years of "The Restoration" which returned the monarchy to Scotland in 1660, the writer is addressing John Forbes (1609-1687), 2nd Lord Culloden, MP and provost of Inverness. Forbes was the friend and supporter of Archibald Campbell, marquis of Argyle, and from his strong support of Presbyterian principles, he suffered much in the persecuting times during the reign of Charles II and his brother James. He was an active friend and supporter of the Revolution, and upon his death his estates were in consequence ravaged by the troops of Colonel Cannan and Major-general Buchan, who had assumed the command of James' army after the fall of Dundee. He was chosen as member of parliament for the shire of Elgin or Inverness, but refused to take the test on 10th February 1685, therefore could not take his seat. Having inherited the Culloden house from his father Duncan Forbes, he increased his fortune around the year 1670 with the purchases of the barony of Ferintosh and the estate of Bunchrew. His eldest son was Duncan Forbes of Culloden (1644-1704), a Scottish politician who was Commissioner for Nairnshire from 1702-1704, MP for Nairn and Inverness between 1678 and 1704), and heir to his estates. He was among the most active of those patriots who in Scotland contributed to bring about the expulsion of James II. On the death of his father in 1687, he succeeded to the family estates. The year after the revolution his estates at Culloden and Ferintosh were ravaged by the Jacobite hordes of Buchan and Cannon. The Scotch parliament met his claim for compensation by voting him a perpetual grant of a liberty to distil into spirits the grain of the barony of Ferintosh upon his paying a small specific composition in lieu of excise. The following Scottish peers and politicians are mentioned in the text: The corrupt Colonel William Sinclair, who was appointed Governor of Shetland in July 1665, in charge of Fort Charlotte at Lerwick, and who brought there two convicts from Dumfries, possibly as conscripts, or to aid in the construction of the castle being built at Bressay. In 1667 he as a Commissioner of Supply for Shetland. Sir William Purves of Woodhouselee, who became Solicitor General for Scotland in the reign of Charles II, was directed to inquire into the condition of the King's revenue. In 1667 his researches in this connection resulted in a folio volume of 71 pages. The question of the condition of the patrimony of the Crown possessed great interest for Sir William, and in 1681 he drew up a more elaborate account of the revenue, which is now held in the British Museum. [The IGI in a marriage entry records him as William Baronet Laird Fulford Purvess.] James Scott, 1st Duke of Monmouth (1649-1685), the eldest illegitimate son of Charles II, an English nobleman born in the Netherlands who entered the Peerage of Scotland when at the young age of 14 he was married to Anne Scott, 4th Countess of Buccleuch. James took his wife's surname upon marriage. The day after his marriage, the couple were made Duke and Duchess of Buccleuch, Earl and Countess of Dalkeith, and Lord and Lady Scott of Whitchester and Eskdale. In 1665, at the age of 16, Monmouth served in the English fleet under his uncle, the Duke of York, in the Second Anglo-Dutch War, returning in June 1666. He was beheaded in 1685. William Sharp of Stonyhill (circa 1621-1697), was keeper of the Scottish Signet in 1673, brother of Archbishop and politician James Sharp. He settled in Edinburgh, having an estate near Musselburgh and was knighted in 1669. [The Keeper of the Signet is one of the Great Officers of State of Scotland, and is one of the offices held by the Lord Clerk Register.] (late) Sir Alexander Durham of Pitkerrow, who was living in 1620, who was knighted by Charles II for his service in the English Civil War, and constituted Lord Lyon King at Arms. He died unmarried, bequeathing the lands of Largo to his nephew Francis, the son of his eldest brother James of Pitkerrow, one of the ministers of Glasgow. English politician Sir Stephen Fox (1627-1716) who served as MP for several terms for Salisbury, Wetsminster and Cricklade, and who was twice Paymaster of the Forces, a position in the British government which was established 1661 after the Restoration, and was responsible for part of the financing of the British Army. He was knighted in 1665, the year of this letter. Excerpts from the letter: "My dear Lord, My silence this day [....] was by reason of my borne great indisposition being then much more tormented then at anie tyme before with the chit and gravells, which yet doeth [...] to me though my pain (I thank God) go much abated." "After Christmas is over that I have recovered a little more strength I shall then vigorousle bestowe my selfe for your [...] satisfaction, & and according to success will find you an accompt of my endeavours..." "... I belive that Mr. William Sharp has given you an accompt of the moneys' he hath received from Sir William Purvess. I hope at candlemass there will be much brought in as may make... for your Lordship & your partner 4000 sterling [silver], for which there is some sufficient Bonds, given the pursuance of which shall not be neglected..." "... collected... it may be made current in the Country in a year His Majesty's rents, yours nor any subjects will be payed... nor are people able pay there annuall rents, nor doe other things of necessary use... so great is the scarecitie of money, that people from whom it is due doe offer [...] and cattle... cannot be made useful at present by [...] want of trading. I was in expectation to have received 300to strl: due to me upon accompt of the remainder of [...] owing in Sr Alexander Durham's tyme, butt all that I have gottin is 500 merks and Bond for the rest..." "... Tho as of late I have stirred little abroad yet I have heard fulle the great complaints brought in against Colonel Sinclair, both as to his carelessness in not presenting the trust reposed in him for the security of Shetland, and also for his great imbezling of the goods taken in the West India ship... and did take all the goods of greatest value and putt them aboard a Danish ship, and thereafter did suffer the person sent by my Lord Commissioner to go aboard the West India Ship, who found that the cotton which did lye formerly betwixt the decks was putt in the hold in place of those things that he had putt aboard for other ships, all particulars by the next will be sent you." "... the deposition of the Captain and Pylot of the ship, with some of the [...] & severall of his souldiers being examined upon oath, doeth make it obvious that if he hold [gripp?] he hath undoubtlessle putt himselfe in a most easie condition for the futur...." "The public letter sygned by My Lord Commissioner is most Grace & we will bring your Lordship a full and clear answer to Sir Stephen Fox proposall for the Duke of Munmuth's rents [Duke of Monmouth]. Adieu." End Excerpts. The pre-decimalisation British system of coinage was introduced by King Henry II. It was based on the troy system of weighing precious metals. The penny was literally one pennyweight of silver. A pound sterling thus weighed 240 pennyweights, or a pound of sterling silver. William Purves, 1st Baronet Purves of Purves Hall, Berwickshire Sir William was bred to the Scottish Bar. Before the Usurpation he held an Office in the Courts of Session and was one of the Clerks of the Committees of Parliament. He took an active part on the side of Royalty during the reign of Charles I and he suffered deeply in the cause, both in his person and in his property. For several years he was obliged to conceal himself and in 1656 when peace was restored under the Commonwealth he accepted (through necessity) a small Office in the Exchequer. In this situation he availed himself of the opportunity of being useful to the persecuted Royalists, although he never swerved from his fidelity as a Public Officer. Upon the Restoration of Charles II he was appointed His Majesty's Solicitor General for Scotland; he was afterwards knighted and elected Solicitor for the affairs of the Church of Scotland. In the same year he obtained a joint gift with the Earl (afterwards Duke) of Lauderdale of Wards and Marriages. He was created a Baronet of the Kingdom of Scotland in July 1665. Besides the lands of Abbeyhill, he appears to have been the proprietor of the lands of Woodhouselee and Fulford in the County of Edinburgh ["the ancient tower of Fulford, home of Sir David Purves, was repaired after the Civil Wars and its name changed to Woodhouselee, which it still retains" - The Scotsman's Library, P.534]; the lands of Purveshaugh near Earlston in Berwickshire; and the estates of Purves Hall in Berwickshire. The last he purchased from the family of Belches of Tofts. He also owned the estate of Lambden lying contiguous to Purves, purchased from Home of Kains; both these last are still in the family. The IGI in a marriage entry records him as "William Baronet Laird Fulford Purvess". . Very Good.

        Réflexions morales de Monsieur L.R. Foucaut

      - Paris, Barbin, 1665 In-12, 17ff-113+[5]pp-1ff Hauteur des marges : 131mm Exemplaire provenant de la bibliothèque d'Antoine Rochebilière, resté dans sa famille depuis. TRES RARE contrefaçon dont on ne connaît que très peu d'exemplaires, Claudin dans le catalogue Rochebilière ne donne que celui du catalogue (exemplaire Veinant, acheté en 1863 par Rochebilière). C'est le premier qui donne le nom de La Rochefoucauld, mal orthographié, dans l'ouvrage. Cette édition est restée longtemps inconnue des bibliophiles. L'exemplaire Veinant, semble-t-il mal décrit n'a pas donné lieu à une découverte, si ce n'est pour Rochebilière (voir ci-dessous). En revanche, dans le Bulletin du Bibliophile de janvier 1865 (pages 40 à 42, visible ici), un certain Ch Barry a découvert un exemplaire de cette édition qu'il décrit et indique qu'il ne correspond pas aux éditions citées par Brunet à la date de 1665. Avec l'exemplaire Veinant/Rochebilière, et l'exemplaire Rochebilière présenté ici, cela fait donc trois exemplaires connus. La BNF dispose d'un exemplaire, peut-être un quatrième? On l'indique parfois comme 4e tirage. Claudin en dit aussi : C'est évidemment une contrefaçon faite au fond de quelque province de France. Le texte de cette édition est un texte mixte car jusqu'à la maxime 228, c'est le texte primitif et à partir du milieu de cette maxime, c'est le texte des exemplaires cartonnés. Antoine Rochebilière était un spécialiste des éditions des Maximes de La Rochefoucauld, certainement le plus grand. Son catalogue contient 32 exemplaires (n°444 à 475), qui ne sont qu'une partie de ce qu'il possédait. Reliure plein veau, aux armes de France et de Chalons. Il semble que cet ouvrage ait été donné au collège de Chalons, qui faisait ce type de reliures. Manque aux coiffes et dos, mors en partie fendus, manques aux coins. Exemplaire modeste, il manque la page de titre mais le texte reste bien complet, mouillure atteignant une partie du texte sur la première moitié. Longue note de Rochebilière sur le contre-plat disant ""Ma conjecture était exacte. Je viens de voir cette édition [exemplaire Veinant]. Elle est intitulée Réflexions morales de L.R.Foucaut à Paris chez Claude Barbin vis à vis . de la croix 1665 avec privilège. Cette édition est celle-ci, je l'ai confrontée. Il ne manque à cet exempl. que le frontispice. Voyez le 2e catalogue de M Veinant Paris Potier 23 mars et jours suivants, 1863, in-8 n°92. Je l'ai confronté avec cet exemplaire à l'exposition. L'exemplaire de vente était réglé sans doute par . Veinant."" Et d'ajouter ""Je possède maintenant l'exemplaire même ci-dessus décrit"" Provenances : Antoine Rochebilière, avec une longue note sur le contre-plat (voir ci-dessus) Auguste Raffet, bibliothécaire, fils du peintre et gendre de Rochebilière. Signature sur le contre-plat Références : Rochebilière, 453; Tchémerzine, VII,53. Bel exemplaire, de très bonne provenance, rare. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      Rotterdam, 1665. Forty-four copper plate engravings. Quarto. Old vellum. Vellum dust soiled, small portion of spine lacking. Occasional light foxing or toning. Bottom margin of one folding plate trimmed, slightly affecting explanation. Another folding plate neatly detached. Overall a very nice copy. The second French edition. This copy contains the armorial bookplates of Mathew Wilson and Frances Mary Richardson Currer. Currer (1785-1861) was a renowned British book collector who occasionally had privately printed catalogues of her collection produced. Her library, said to have been comprised of some 20,000 fine books, was sold through Sotheby's in 1862. "The books were all in choice condition, many with fine bindings....The books contain an heraldic book-plate, and are generally noticeable for their fine condition" - DNB. Mathew Wilson was Currer's grandfather or father (both were of the same name), of Eshton Hall, Yorkshire. This important work on the islands of the Caribbean, with interesting information on Florida, Georgia, and the Eskimos, was originally published in French in 1658, its main purpose being the encouragement of Huguenot emigration to America. Its greatest contribution was the impressive marshalling of contemporary information on the Caribbean islands, especially the French and British colonies developing as sugar plantations. However, Rochefort also includes a long account of an "Apalacite" kingdom of Indians said to exist in Florida and present- day Georgia, fanciful in its overall picture, but with some basis in fact. Besides this excursion, there is also a brief account of Greenland Eskimos, and one of the illustrations provides perhaps the best contemporary graphic image of both Eskimos and their garb. It is the Caribbean section, however, which is most significant, and therein are found detailed descriptions of the European settlement of the islands and their natural history, in perhaps the most useful single source of the century. Everett Wilkie has published a detailed article concerning this book, which supplies a wealth of detailed discussion of the book, its authors and text.
