        The Narrative of the Honourable John Byron ? containing An Account of the Great Distresses suffered by himself and his companions on the Coast of Patagonia, from the year 1740, till their arrival in England, 1746. With a description of St. Jago de Chile? also a relation of the loss of the Wager Man of War, one of Admiral Anson's Squadron

      S. Baker, London 1768 - Octavo, with a frontispiece; contemporary dark calf, rubbed; old rebacking, spine worn at top; various owners' signatures including a presentation to 'Arthur Cadogan from Genl. Fox'. Byron's famous narrative. First edition. 'Admiral Byron's narrative of the loss of the Wager is one of the most thrilling accounts in the language, and supplied his illustrious descendant with many particulars for the shipwreck in Don Juan' (Sabin). Byron, later a noted Pacific explorer in his own right, and eventually governor of Newfoundland, was known as "foul weather Jack"; he was a midshipman aboard the Wager and his narrative provides a notable supplement to the main account of Anson's voyage. Byron gives 'an account of pillaging, treachery, and murder by the crew, most of whom claimed that since their pay ceased the moment the ship was lost they were no longer subject to military discipline and it was every man for himself. It told of Byron's own living off the sea, without shelter or clothing, on the 'most unprofitable spot on the globe of the earth'; of his going without a full meal for thirteen months; of his living three years in the lands of the Spaniards? and of his eventual return to England? almost five years after the shipwreck' (R.E. Gallagher, Byron's Journal, Hakluyt Society, 1964). It was for this Byron (and not for the poet as was long assumed) that Cook named Byron Bay on the north coast of New South Wales.

        Viaggio Intorno al Mondo Fatto Dalla Nave Inglese il Delfino Comandata dal Capo Squadra Byron?

      Giuseppe Allegrini, Firenze 1768 - Square octavo, engraved frontispiece, 4, 152 pp., a few ink marks on the title-page but remarkably fresh throughout, untrimmed, in serviceable modern boards. Would you like a biscotti? Most uncommon contemporary Italian edition of the famous account of Byron's circumnavigation by Charles Clerke. As would be expected, the edition includes an excellent new version of the famous frontispiece of an English sailor offering a towering Patagonian couple a biscuit. First published in London in 1767, and quickly followed by a French translation, this Italian edition is very scarce. It would appear to be based on the first London edition (because it does not include a short appendix that was included in the second London edition, also of 1767). We have never seen another copy offered for sale. This famous unauthorised account of "Foul-Weather Jack" Byron's command of the Dolphin on the 1764-66 circumnavigation of the globe was published anonymously but is usually attributed to midshipman Charles Clerke who later sailed on all three of Cook's voyages. Byron's voyage to the Pacific was the first major English voyage in the region since Anson, and would become the first part of Hawkesworth's famous compendium of South Sea voyages. This account became the basis for a dozen or more European editions and translations over the next twenty years. Clerke later served with Captain Cook on all three of his voyages, succeeding him as commander of the third voyage but shortly after dying of tuberculosis at Petropavlovsk in August 1779. Byron's expedition was an important precursor of the voyages of Wallis, Carteret and Cook, but its immediate contemporary impact was the sensation created by rumours of Patagonian giants encountered by the expedition. These tall stories gained currency from a report sent in jest by Clerke to the Royal Society (and printed in the Philosophical Transactions for 1767), and from a similar account published in this book. Extraordinarily, the stories seem to have been encouraged by the British government to divert attention from Byron's taking possession of the Falklands (Malvinas), politically the most sensitive and controversial aspect of his voyage. The amusing affair of the Patagonian giants embroiled many great figures of the Enlightenment including Voltaire (see discussion by Helen Wallis in Byron's Journal, ed. Gallagher, appendix III, and by P.G. Adams, Travelers and Travel Liars, ch. II). [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

      London: Printed for A. Millar; and T. Cadell, 1768.. London: Printed for A. Millar; and T. Cadell, 1768.. vii,[1],296,[2]pp. plus 25*-26* Octavo. Contemporary red goatskin decorated in gilt, with standing and seated figures of Liberty, an owl and a cock, for Hollis by John Matthewman. Narrow cracks at crowns and toes of joints, some darkening and slight rubbing at extremities, otherwise a very good copy. Oval signet stamp on preliminary blank. First (British) edition - a Dublin edition appeared the same year. This copy is in an example of the distinctive bindings executed by John Matthewman for the wealthy and somewhat eccentric Thomas Hollis, whose enthusiasm for the principles of liberty extended to having copies of works of which he approved specially bound and presented to libraries and private parties on both sides of the Atlantic. His enthusiasm for this title is reflected by the fact that he presented another copy, in an identical binding, to the British Library (pictured in Nixon) and a copy to the Earl of Shaftesbury (Maggs 1212:138). Boyers and Nichols's records indicate 750 copies were printed. Blackburne (1705-87), Archdeacon of Cleveland, was a prolific controversialist and generally regarded as unsympathetic to the Catholic cause. The extended title indicates this work is based on two discourses delivered to his clergy in 1765 and 1768. In 1780 he published a highly critical examination of Johnson's treatment of Milton.

        Viage al estrecho de Magallanes. en los años de 1579 y 1580.

      Imprenta Real de la Gazeta, Madrid 1768 - Small quarto, with three folding plates; a fine large copy, with ample margins, probably one of the large copies, printed on thicker paper, as noted by Sabin; two unobtrusive old stamps on verso of title; contemporary vellum, with original ties and the title lettered in ink on spine. A Mendaña veteran maps the Straits of Magellan. First edition, a lovely tall copy bound in contemporary limp vellum, from the library of the Infantes in exile (see below). This is the first printing - from the manuscript in the Royal Library, Madrid - of this highly important sixteenth-century description of the Straits of Magellan and the first attempt to found a Spanish settlement on is shores. Sarmiento had sailed with Mendaña on the expedition which charted the Solomons in 1568. In 1579 the Viceroy of Peru ordered Sarmiento to the Straits of Magellan to intercept Francis Drake, but he arrived too late and Drake had already continued his circumnavigation. Following his instructions to the letter, Sarmiento then explored and mapped the Strait, before sailing for Spain to convince the government to form settlements there. A sixteen-ship fleet, with Sarmiento as governor of the colonists, sailed from Cadiz in 1581 - but the settlement failed, and Sarmiento fell into English hands and was a prisoner for five years. Nonetheless, Sarmiento's charting of the region was, as J.H. Parry signals (The Discovery of South America, London, 1979, pp. 285-9) 'the most serious and thorough exploration of Magellan's Strait in the sixteenth century - indeed the most thorough exploration ever made before the voyage of the Beagle in the nineteenth century.' In fact the officers of the Beagle were lost in admiration for Sarmiento's explorations, but also for his vainglorious attempts at settlement. Philip Parker King concluded: 'This was the first, and perhaps will be the last, attempt made to occupy a country, offering no encouragement for a human being; a region, where the soil is swampy, cold, and unfit for cultivation, and whose climate is thoroughly cheerless?'. The ghastly fate of the settlement is recounted in the appendix also printed here, which is the harrowing account of Tomé Hernandez, the only survivor of the settlement established by Sarmiento at Rey Don Felipe (or Port Famine as it was aptly named by his rescuer, Thomas Cavendish). An English translation of this work is found in Clements Markham, Narratives of the Voyages of Pedro Sarmiento de Gambóa, Hakluyt Society, 1895 (pp. 1-205, 352-75). This copy was once owned by Antonio Pascual de Borbón (1755-1817), with his stamp, showing the letters 'S.D.S.Y.D.A.' enclosed within a crowned wreath, alongside the stamp used by the three Infantes, Fernando (later Ferdinand VII of Spain), Antonio (as above) and Francisco, while in exile during the Napoleonic occupation of Spain.

        TRAITÉ DES ARBRES FRUITIERS, contenant leur figure, leur description, leur culture, [etc.]. [2 volumes].

      1768 - Paris, Saillant et Dessaint, 1768. Deux volumes petit in-folio (260 X 329) veau fauve marbré, dos cinq nerfs, caissons dorés ornés, dentelles dorées en queue, pièce de titre maroquin grenat, coupes et coiffes filetées, tranches rouges (Placé). Tome I: (1) f. blanc, (2) ff. de faux-titre et titre, titre-frontispice, XXIX pages de préface et table, (1) page et (1) f. d'extrait des registres et privilège, 337 pages, 62 planches hors-texte; Tome II: (1) f. blanc, (2) ff. de faux-titre et titre, 280 pages, 118 planches hors-texte. Étiquette de l'imprimeur-libraire et relieur «Placé», installé «Rue du Change, N°13, à Tours, Près Saint-Martin». ÉDITION ORIGINALE de ce traité fondamental sur les arbres fruitiers. «Oeuvre importante car Duhamel y différencie soigneusement les "espèces" des naturalistes, des "variétés" des jardiniers. L'ouvrage fut longtemps consulté. On assure qu'il fut beaucoup aidé par son frère et aussi par l'Abbé Le Berriays.» (Plesch). UNE ABONDANTE ILLUSTRATION : un frontispice par de Sève gravé par de Launay et 180 PLANCHES gravées hors-texte d'après les dessins de Claude Aubriet, successeur de Nicolas Robert comme dessinateur du roi, de son élève Madeleine Basseporte et de l'abbé Le Berriays. Ces gravures, d'une grande finesse d'exécution, présentent en premier plan des fruits dans leurs différentes variétés. UN REMARQUABLE TRAITÉ SCIENTIFIQUE. L'ouvrage décrit une grande variété et un grand nombre d'espèces de fruits: 119 variétés de poires, 48 de prunes, 39 de pommes et pas moins de 34 variétés de cerises. Seuls les fruits de table sont la matière de ce traité pratique: les pommes à cidre de même que les raisins à vin en sont exclus. Dans un souci d'exactitude, les fruits, feuilles et branches sont présentés grandeur nature. On trouve également de nombreux modèles de greffe et de taille. Infatigable collaborateur de Duhamel de Monceau, l'abbé Le Berriays apporta beaucoup à la réalisation de l'ouvrage: un peu plus d'un tiers des dessins ainsi qu'une grande partie du texte. UN FONDATEUR DE L'AGRONOMIE MODERNE. Botaniste, membre de l'Académie des Sciences, Henri-Louis DUHAMEL DU MONCEAU (1700-1782) fut le premier à décrire les lois de la croissance des plantes, de la formation des écorces et du bois, la manière dont les branches se transforment en racine et réciproquement, le double mouvement de la sève et l'influence de l'air et du sol sur le développement des végétaux. Véritable ingénieur, son goût pour les problèmes concrets, l'expérimentation et la vulgarisation en font l'un des fondateurs de l'agronomie et de la sylviculture modernes. Dans la lignée des savants du XVIIIe siècle, il occupe un rang pratiquement égal à celui de Buffon et à celui de Lavoisier. L'amateur goûtera sûrement le sérieux du texte dû à un des grands botanistes du dix-huitième siècle, allié à la beauté des planches qui sont remarquablement gravées. ( Plesch,210-11 &#150; Brunet, II, 871, «Ouvrage bien exécuté» &#150; Nissen, 550 &#150; Pritzel, 2466 &#150; Great Flowers Books, p. 93 &#150; Sandra Raphaël, "An Oak Spring Pomona", 28 &#150; Bogart-Damin et Piron, "Livres de fruits du XVIe au XXe siècle", 32 &#150; Rahir, "Bibliothèque de l'Amateur", p. 408).

      Madrid: En la oficina de Joachin de Ibarra, 1768. Madrid: En la oficina de Joachin de Ibarra, 1768. First edition. Old paper-covered boards. Crude leather spine, faint dampstain to front board and corner of first few leaves, rear board with larger dampstain as well as last leaves, occasional soil spot on leaves, bookseller label at rear, but untrimmed and wide margined, with strong impressions, certainly a good or better copy. 4to. Mostly consists of comments on certain writings of Isidro Carbajal y Lancaster, Bishop of Cuenca, who had accused the monarchy of setting the country "hopelessly adrift" and stripping the church of its properties, scorning its ministers, and running a disastrous colonial policy leading to deterioration of the Spanish possessions (there had been rioting in Quito, Ecuador, in 1766). The Prontuario variously ascribed these comments to the fiscales of the Consejo Real, Pedro Campomanes and José Moñino, as well as other documents in the case. The bishop was eventually forced "to recant formally and abjectly before a session of the Consejo de Castilla held in Aranda's resident," (Stanley J. Stein, "Apogee of Empire: Spain and New Spain in the Age of Charles III, 1759?1789," Baltimore: John Hopkins, 2003). Palau wrongly lists the date in the 162216 entry as 1767, though it is correct in the second entry. Provenance: Alberto Parreno: Swann Parreño sale, 9 February 1978, lot 323, this copy. Palau 162212.

        Historic Doubts on the Life and Reign of King Richard the Third

      London: J. Dodsley, 1768. London: J. Dodsley. Very Good with no dust jacket. 1768. Second Edition. First Printing. Leather. Full contemporary calf over marbled boards, spine in six compartments separated by raised bands, gilt lettering on black label in one compartment. Illustrated with two full-page woodcuts, a frontispiece portrait of Richard III and one of Richard with his queen, Anne. Includes a one page "Addition" concerning the subsequent history of Catherine Gordon, the widow of Perkin Warbeck. The first edition, also published in 1768, but in a limited edition of 1,250 copies, sold out very quickly, and a second edition (of which this copy is one) was published in the same year. Walpole&#39;s goal was to rehabilitate the character of Richard the Third, whom Walpole felt had been unfairly vilified by earlier historians. Horatio Walpole, 4th Earl of Orford (1717-1797) was an English art historian, man of letters, antiquarian and Whig politician. He is now largely remembered for Strawberry Hill, the home he built in Twickenham, southwest London where he revived the Gothic style some decades before his Victorian successors, for his Historic Doubts on the Life and Reign of King Richard the Third; and for his Gothic novel, The Castle of Otranto. He was the son of Sir Robert Walpole, and cousin of Admiral Lord Nelson. In Historic Doubts on the Life and Reign of King Richard III (1768), Walpole defended Richard III against the common belief that he murdered the Princes in the Tower. In this he has been followed by other writers, such as Josephine Tey and Valerie Anand.. Expertly refurbished, label and spine exceptionally fresh and clean, boards rubbed and worn, former owner&#39;s small printed bookplate on fep with brief pencil notations. VERY GOOD.. Woodcuts. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. xv, [1], 134, [2] pp .
