        Voyage en Sibérie, fait par ordre du Roi en 1761; contenant les moeurs, les usages des Russes, et l'etat actuel de cette puissance [and] contenant la description du Kamchatka.

      Chez Debure Paris 1768 - Two parts of text in three volumes quarto (34 x 25.5 cm) and and 1 vol atlas (59.5 x 47 cm). Vol 1, part 1: Half-title, engraved frontispiece by Tilliard after le Prince, title, xxx, [2], 348 pp. with 29 plates, including 4 double-page and 1 table; Vol 2, part 2: half-title, title, 347-768 pp. with 8 plates; Vol.3: xvi pp., including title and half title, 628, [4 pp.] with 20 plates, all engraved by le Bas, Tilliard, St. Aubin, Baquoy, and others after le Prince, de Fecamp, and Moreau. Atlas: engraved frontispiece by Tilliard after le Prince, 30 maps, plans and profiles (on 24, some plates have been joined); occasional slight soiling and spotting. Text vols in contemporary mottled calf, spines gilt; atlas in recent half calf over marbled boards. Fine, fresh example of the first edition of one of the most celebrated early ethnographies of Siberia. The French priest and astronomer, abbé Jean-Baptiste Chappe d'Auteroche, travelled to Siberia in 1761 to observe the transit of Venus. His account of this journey which occupies both parts of the first volume describes the meteorology, climate, fauna and minerals of the region, and also gives a sociological commentary. Though the publication received a warm welcome in France, it is said to have angered the Empress Catherine the Great for its unflattering description of Russian mores. The entire volume II contains Chappe d'Auteroche's own, new translation of Krashenninikov's Opisanie zemli Kamchetki [Description of the Kamchatka land] (St. Petersburg, 1755, in Russian). Previously translated into English only in an abridged form, this is the first full, complete translation into a Western language. It "contains considerable material on Alaska and the northwest coast of America" (Hill collection). "This work deserves attention for its attractive and accurate engravings, and for its forthright and sometimes provocative descriptions of Russian manners and character. [It] includes meteorological observations, descriptions of the climate, animals, birds, and insects, note on the iron ore, copper, and gold mines, etc." (Hill).

        [Hand-Colored] An account of Corsica, the journal of a tour to that island; and memoirs of Pascal Paoli. By James Boswell, Esq; Illustrated with a new and accurate map of Corsica

      Glasgow: printed by Robert and Andrew Foulis for Edward and Charles Dilly in the Poultry, London, 1768. First Edition of Boswell's first important work, which launched his career and catapulted him to fame. Demy 8vo: xxi,[3],382pp, with final blank and large folding map of Corsica by Thomas Phinn in contemporary hand-color (second state, as per Rothschild, with imprint but without scale of miles, nor division of the margins into degrees, and placed before A1). Armorial bookplate of Westport House, County Mayo, Ireland, the Browne family crest. One of 3500 copies printed, among which are many variants (some described in Tinker), which may be found in any combination. In our copy, complete with "the very rare half-title" (Rothschild), the table of contents (b2) follows the preface (a3-b1); D2 recto is in Rothschild's first state, with the words "John Home" incorrectly placed following the first quotation on p. 51; E2 and Z3 are cancellanses, with "Mariani" spelled correctly (line 24, p. 357). Pottle additional misprints are also present: "141" for "241" in table of contents; broken "E" in "Etruscans" on p. 70, line 17; "feelirg" on p. 137, line 11; "tha the" on p. 172, line 9; "Montgomerÿ" on p. 184, line 4; "speculati-ions" on p. 327, lines 9-10; pp. 93 and 296 are correctly printed (the last words of line 6, p.93, are "prince of" and of line 18, p.296, "of my own"). Full contemporary mottled calf, green morocco lettering piece, all edges stained green, plain period end papers. A superb copy with the magnificent map of Corsica in rare hand-color; foxing to end papers and several quires, a few occasional minor stains, but withal fine. Tinker Library 318. Cox I p. 138. Gaskell (Foulis) 473. NCBEL II 1211. Pottle 24. Rothschild 442. Lowndes 242 ("first and uncastrated edition"). Boswell was a staunch supporter of the Corsican Republic: he took such "childish pleasure in being the chief sponsor of this wild island struggling to become a nation," that, for Garrick's anniversary celebration in honor of Shakespeare, in 1769, he dressed as a Corsican chief. (Cox). "Following the island's invasion by France, in 1768, Boswell attempted to raise public awareness and rally support for the Corsicans. He sent arms and money to the Corsican fighters, and made an arduous and dangerous journey to Corsica to meet General Pasquale Paoli, leader of the insurgents seeking the island's independence from the Genoese. Paoli at first suspected [Boswell] was a spy, but quickly came to like his improbable young visitor, saw an opportunity for promotion of the Corsican cause in Britain, and consented to a series of interviews. . . . With its reports of the gallant islanders and a Plutarchan depiction of Paoli paralleled with several classical heroes, [An Account of Corsica] was an immediate success. The work was widely read and translated [the first edition of 3500 copies was sold out within six weeks, and a second edition (also of 3500 copies) was ready a month or so later], stimulated great interest in Paoli and the Corsican cause, brought its author wide fame in Britain and Europe, and found an interested readership among the Americans. It attracted the notice of the French government (which had a translation made), and though Boswell's ambition for British intervention was not to be fulfilled, he probably influenced Britain's decision to send secret supplies of arms to the Corsicans." (ODNB) An ironic consequence of Paoli's ultimate defeat was that one of the first babies born under the new French jurisdiction was Napoleon Bonaparte, son of Paoli's adjutant. "The Account of Corsica was the book of the hour. Many more copies of it were sold in Boswell's lifetime than either of his great works in the biography of Johnson, and it achieved abroad a much more remarkable success." (Pottle) N. B.
