        THOMAS HUTCHINSON, ESQUIRE; CAPTAIN-GENERAL AND GOVERNOR IN CHIEF, IN AND OVER HIS MAJESTY'S PROVINCE OF MASSACHUSETTS-BAY, TO SAMUEL SEWALL ESQ GREETING. BY VIRTUE OF THE POWER AND AUTHORITY IN AND BY HIS MAJESTY'S ROYAL COMMISSION TO ME GRANTED TO BE...FIRST MAJOR OF THE REGIMENT OF MILITIA

      Boston. Aug. 5, 1771.. Broadside, 14¼ x 16 inches. Expertly silked, with some strengthening of fold lines on verso, mild loss along centerfold. Good. In a blue cloth folding case. A superb engraved colonial appointment from Loyalist Massachusetts Governor Thomas Hutchinson, completed in manuscript and signed by him during his first official year as governor of the colony. In the document, Hutchinson appoints Samuel Sewall, Esq. to the position of First Major for the Militia of York County, Massachusetts (now the southernmost county in present-day Maine), under the command of Col. Nathaniel Sparhawk. Hutchinson signed the document at top left, just beneath the seal. The manuscript portions of the document appear to be in the hand of Hutchinson's secretary, John Cotton, whose signature appears at the bottom of the document. Additionally, there are two witness signatures on the verso. ^This interesting document involves two important Massachusetts figures. Thomas Hutchinson was a merchant and politician, and the most prominent Loyalist in the province, ascending from lieutenant governor to governor of Massachusetts, serving in the latter role from 1771 to 1773 after a brief period as acting governor. Hutchinson was a nuisance to the Revolutionaries, as he continually sided with the Crown on the most hated of British taxes. Hutchinson fled Boston for London in late 1773, and remained in exile in England until his death in 1780. He also wrote an important history on the Massachusetts Bay, the first volume of which was published in 1764, with the third volume published posthumously. ^The appointee is Maj. Samuel Sewall, Esq. Sewall was a great-nephew of famed Salem witch trial judge Samuel Sewall. He was an accomplished inventor, furniture maker, architect, and engineer, credited as the first person to drive piles into deep rivers as a foundation for bridges. He designed and helped build the bridge that would later bear his name in York County, and helped design and erect the Charlestown Bridge in Boston in 1786. Very little is known of Sewall's military career; it is very likely that Sewall switched allegiances and served with the patriots during the Revolution, as he was a respected and influential citizen of York for the remainder of his days. ^The document was engraved by talented Boston silversmith, Nathaniel Hurd. Hurd was an expert with precious metals, especially the ornate decorations that characterized the rococo style of the period. He also produced a large number of bookplates for prominent citizens of Boston, trade cards, paper currency, table of weights and measures, various important prints, and engraved military commissions ordered by the provincial government, like the present example. Hurd died just six years after the date of this document, cutting short the career of an early American silversmith engraver who was at least the equal of Paul Revere, if not the best silversmith in Boston of his period. ^An outstanding colonial appointment signed by the penultimate British governor of Massachusetts, appointing a first-rate engineer from a prominent Massachusetts family to first major of the York militia.

Printed with the approbation of the chevalier de Borda as a shipbuilding manual for the use of the Gardes de la Marine, essentially the students of a distributed Royal Naval College. It was produced in dictionary form, without plates, with the intention of forcing the students to learn by observation in the shipyards; "it is on the shipyard, and with the book in hand, that a young man should follow the printed description: if the text was accompanied by figures, the reader would be tempted to stay in his room" (p.xxix). Ownership inscription verso of first blank, and elegant engraved book label to front pastedown, of Devis Decrès, future minister of the navy under Napoleon.

His ownership inscription gives his rank as lieutenant, placing purchase of this volume between 1786 and 1793, when he became a captain. Arrested as a noble at the outbreak of the French Revolution, he was reinstated in 1795 and placed in command of the Formidable, and in her took part in the attempted invasion of Ireland in 1796. He was promoted to contre-amiral in 1798 and commanded a light squadron during the invasion of Egypt, covering the landing in Malta. He took part in the Battle of the Nile in the Diane, managing to avoid the slaughter, and escaping to Malta, raising his flag in the Guillaume Tell. He was captured trying to break the blockade, and eventually exchanged back to France in August 1800. Napoleon personally presented him an with an honour sabre, and appointed him maritime prefect at Lorient. From 3 October 1801 to the fall of the Empire in 1814, he served as Napoleon's Minister of the Navy., being made a duke in April 1813. During the Hundred Days Decrès briefly resumed his post as Minister of the Navy. He died in a house fire in 1820.

        \"Guajave\" - Kolibri, Spinnen und Ameisen auf einem Guaveast. Tafel Nr. XVIII aus: Metamorphosis insectorum Surinamensium.

      Paris, Desnos, 1771. Vierte (4.) Ausgabe. Handkolorierter original Kupferstich auf starkem Büttenpapier. Gr.-Folio (53 x 35 cm), lose in Graphikhülle. Nissen BBI 1341; Pfeiffer: Die Werke der Maria Sibylle Merian. Nr. B, 7; Schmidt-Loske: Die Tierwelt der Maria Sibylle Merian. S. 81ff, Abb. 49-52; Wettengl S. 176 u. 230. - Aus der vierten und letzten Ausgabe. Die Tafeln dieser Ausgabe sind leicht von denen früherer Ausgaben zu unterscheiden, da sie oben rechts eine römische Ziffer als Tafelnummerierung und unten links eine Bezeichnung/Titel tragen. Diese wurden erst später in die Kupferplatte eingraviert und finden sich nur auf den Tafeln der vierten Ausgabe. Die vorliegende XVIII. Tafeln nimmt aus zwei Gründen eine herausragende Stellung innerhalb des Werkes ein. Zum einen unterscheidet sie sich durch ihr außergewöhnliches Sujet von allen anderen Tafeln. Während diese durch harmonische Kombination von Pflanzen, Schmetterlingen und deren Larven, ein eher friedliches Bild vermitteln, zeigt die \"Guajave\" Tafel in deutlicher, fast dramatischer Art und Weise den Überlebenskampf in der Natur - das Fressen und Gefressen werden. Zum anderen ist diese Tafel großer Bedeutung für die systematische Arachnologie (Spinnentierkunde) bzw. deren Geschichte. Der berühmte schwedische Naturforscher Carl von Linne (1707-1778), Begründer der modernen wissenschaftlichen Systematik der Tierreichs, nahm u. a. diese Tafel zum Anlass die große haarige Spinnen, von denen eine einen Vogel (Kolibri) erbeutet hat, Vogelspinne (Aranea avicularia) zu nennen und diesen Namen auch in seinem \"Systema naturae\" zu publizieren. Dies führte in der Folge dazu, dass heute innerhalb der Ordnung der Webspinnen (Araneae), eine etwa 800 Arten umfassende Familie als Vogelspinnen (Theraphosidae) bezeichnet wird. - Zustand: Das Blatt insgesamt nur leicht, die unbeschnittenen Blattränder etwas stärker gebräunt, letztere auch mit kleineren Randläsuren. Insgesamt gut bis sehr gut erhaltenes Blatt in schönem Handkolorit. Versand D: 5,00 EUR Merian Maria Sibylla, Surinam, Spinnen, Arachniden, Theraphosidae, Kupferstich,

        Commentaries on the Laws of England. [Together with:] Tracts chiefly relating to the Antiquities and Laws of England. The Third Edition.

      Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1766-69 & 1771 - 2 works bound as 5 volumes, quarto (273 × 203 mm). Contemporary mottled calf recently rebacked in brown morocco, decorative gilt spines, red and dark green morocco twin labels. A little wear to corners of bindings, some paper toning and scattered foxing. 2 engraved tables (1 folding) in volume II. An attractive set of mixed editions of the Commentaries: first edition of volumes III and IV, second edition of volume I, third edition of volume II; with the third edition of the Tracts. "Blackstone's great work on the laws of England is the extreme example of justification of an existing state of affairs by virtue of its history Until the Commentaries, the ordinary Englishman had viewed the law as a vast, unintelligible and unfriendly machine. Blackstone's great achievement was to popularize the law and the traditions which had influenced its formation. He takes a delight in describing and defending as the essence of the constitution the often anomalous complexities which had grown into the laws of England over the centuries. But he achieves the astonishing feat of communicating this delight, and this is due to a style which is itself always lucid and graceful" (PMM). Armorial bookplate in each volume of George Manners: possibly the diplomatist (1778-1853) and editor of the Tory journal The Satirist who practised law in London between 1815 and 1819.

        Lettres Américaines sur les Parlemens. 1770 & 1771

      [S.n.] (1771?), [S.l.] - First edition. Published unbound. Stitched. 44, (4) p. A fictional correspondence between R** and T*** "deux Américaines originaires du Port-au-Prince dans l'Isle de S. Domingue. Le premier réside a Paris depuis quelques années" (two Americans from Port-au-Prince on the island of Saint-Domingue. The first lives in Paris for some years). The letters are dated between December 1770 and April 1771. The text is attributed to Voltaire and it is in favour of Maupeou's jurisdictional reform. René Nicolas Charles Augustin de Maupeou (1714-1792) as the chief minister of the French King made a revolutionary attempt to install the enlightened despotism in France, through the suppression of the power of the parliament by destroying its system, and the favour of the royal authority. He also made efforts to uniform the judicial system throughout the country. Voltaire praised this revolution, applauding the suppression of the old hereditary magistrature, and justified the reform in several essays, among them this one. Scarce and interesting publication, we could trace only two copies in institutional holdings in the US. [Not in Sabin.]. First page blank, but title in ink. First and last pages slightly chipped and stained. Overall in fine condition. [Attributes: First Edition]

        [LIST OF MONIES OWED TO REPRESENTATIVES OF THE UPPER HOUSE OF THE CONNECTICUT GENERAL ASSEMBLY FOR THE OCTOBER 1771 SESSION, SIGNED BY ROGER SHERMAN, OLIVER WOLCOTT, AND OTHERS]

      [Np, but likely New Haven], 1771. Folio. Backed with tissue. Faint old fold lines. A few small edge tears at folds, repaired. Minor soiling. Very good. In a red half morocco and cloth clamshell case, spine gilt. List of monies paid to twelve members of the House of Assistants of the Connecticut General Assembly, signed by several of them, including two future signers of the Declaration of Independence, Roger Sherman and Oliver Wolcott. Sherman is notable as the only person to sign all four of the major foundational documents of United States: the Continental Association, the Declaration of Independence, the Articles of Confederation, and the U.S. Constitution. He also served on the Committee of Five that drafted the Declaration of Independence, and later drafted the Connecticut Compromise for the U.S. Constitution, which proposed a bicameral representative government and guaranteed equal representation in the Senate for every state, no matter its size. Wolcott signed not only the Declaration, but also the Articles of Confederation, and later served as Connecticut's fourth governor. This document was likely written in New Haven, which served as the joint capital of Connecticut with Hartford until 1776, hosting the October legislative sessions. In addition to Sherman and Wolcott, it is signed by representatives William Pitkin, Robert Walker, Abraham Davenport, William Samuel Johnson, and Joseph Spencer. The remaining members are noted as having been "paid by receipt." It is docketed on the verso and signed by Joseph Trumbull, deputy to the Assembly. For his time in the House of Assistants (later the Connecticut Senate), Sherman was paid £6/18/0; Wolcott, £5/15/4.

        THE GENTLEMAN AND CITIZEN'S POCKET-ALMANAC, BY WILLIAM EVITT, PRINTER. FOR THE YEAR 1772. FITTED TO THE USE OF PENNSYLVANIA AND THE NEIGHBORING PROVINCES. CONTAINING A MUCH GREATER VARIETY OF CURIOUS AND USEFUL LISTS, TABLES, &c. &c. THAN ANY OTHER ALMANACK, PRINTED ON THE CONTINENT OF AMERICA

      Philadelphia, 1771. 24mo. Contemporary marbled wrappers. Wrappers lightly worn. One contemporary manuscript inscription on one unprinted leaf, a few manuscript annotations in margins of printed pages. Light age-toning, offsetting on blank leaves. A near fine copy. An extremely rare colonial-era Pennsylvania almanac compiled and published by William Evitt. Drake records copies at the Historical Society of Pennsylvania and the American Antiquarian Society, but the AAS does not list this edition in their online catalogue. AAS/NAIP records the ten previous annual issues of this almanac, but not this edition, perhaps the last published with this title. However, AAS does hold a copy lacking the last leaf. This copy is in contemporary wrappers and has fourteen additional blank leaves, only one of which has a single inscription ("Thursday 10th [December] came Nancy"). A few contemporary annotations, however, are found in the margins of the printed text. In addition to the calendar, the almanac provides an extensive list of the "representatives, sheriffs, coroners, commissioners, and assessors throughout the province of Pennsylvania." Information on court sessions in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Maryland, and Virginia is also included. A rare surviving copy of perhaps the last issue of this popular Pennsylvania almanac. Not in OCLC or NAIP; listed in Evans (the imperfect AAS copy).

Son ouvrage adopte une approche qui s'apparente à celle d'un artiste : construisant son jardin comme un peintre une oeuvre, il dessine une structure, des formes ; il est attentif aux couleurs, cherche à les harmoniser en fonction des saisons, soucieux d'effacer ce qui pourrait paraître convenu, artificiel. L'Angleterre alors se passionnait tant pour les jardins irréguliers que pour l'architecture gothique, voyant en eux l'image et le symbole de l'indépendance, le refus du pouvoir absolu. Dans son introduction, le traducteur souligne les difficultés pour un Français, épris de la rigueur des jardins dessinés par Le Nôtre, de souscrire à ceux qui sont ordonnés selon les idées. Bel exemplaire. Ganay, Bibliographie de l'art des jardins, 87.

        AN ASTRONOMICAL DIARY: OR, ALMANACK FOR THE YEAR OF OUR LORD CHRIST, 1772

      [Boston, 1771. 12mo. Dbd. Lightly foxed. Very good. A variation of the original Russell edition (which had two engravings by Revere), this is one of several editions published in New England, though this one lacks any imprint information. NAIP notes that this edition, with its advertisement on the last page for Daniel Jones, is almost certainly the edition printed and advertised by Edes & Gill. The nature of the engravings in this almanac becomes more puzzling due to a charge in Paul Revere's Day Book which reads, "Messrs Edes & Gill Dr / To Engraving 3 plates for Ames Almanack / 2-14-0," on December 21, just five days after his entry for two engravings for Russell's Ames almanac. It is unclear, then, whether this almanac should be considered a pirated edition with imitations of Revere's engravings, or whether there is sufficient evidence to believe that these engravings are genuine Revere engravings, albeit copies of his original engravings. The engraving on the titlepage is of a dwarf, Miss Emma Leach, who had recently traveled to Boston. Of the two engravings in the interior, the first depicts political writer Jonathan Dickinson, under his pseudonym of "The Patriotic American Farmer." The second shows Mrs. Catherine Macaulay, a famous British intellectual and author, and correspondent of many of the leading Boston patriots. Macaulay's book on English liberties was an important source for Otis, Adams, Dickinson, and other American leaders. This almanac is also notable for including an essay on a beekeeping technique used in Greece. Nathaniel Ames Jr. continued writing this almanac series after his father died in 1764 and until the beginning of the Revolutionary War. He was a successful doctor, ardent Anti-Federalist, and local politician.

        Comoediae sex, ... commentario perpetuo illustratae. Accedunt interpretes vetustiores, Aelius Donatus, ... Frid. Lindenbruchii observationes ... Curavit Arn. Henr. Westerhovius. The Hague, Pierre Gosse, 1726. 3 parts in 2 volumes, bound as 1. 4to (26 x 21.5 x 12 cm). With 2 title-pages printed in red and black, each preceded by the same frontispiece, and a full-page portrait of Terence. Mottled richly gold-tooled calf (1771 or shortly before), each board with the crowned Zwolle coat of arms above a panel with "ZWOLLÆ." as centrepiece. The binding was made by the First Zwolle Prize bindery, tentatively associated with Simon Clement, with the manuscript prize inscription from the rector of the Zwolle gymnasium dated summer 1771.

      Dibdin, II, p. 475; for the binding tools: Spoelder, Prijsboeken, p. 725; J. Storm van Leeuwen, Dutch decorated bookbinding in the eighteenth century, vol. IIB, pp. 1018-1027. Celebrated edition, the first to be edited by Arnoldus Henricus Westerhovius, of all six comedies by Terence, his only known work, still regarded as highlights of classical literature and the earliest well-known works by an African-born author, with extensive commentaries and indexes. Dibdin described it as "a sumptuous and valuable edition", which "will be found to contain the learned observations of Lindenbrogius, of Calphurnius upon the 'Heautontomorumenos', of Eugraphius, enlarged from two Leiden MSS. and the commentaries of Donatus. The index is copious". With a manuscript inscription in Latin, dated summer 1771, by Friedrich Ludwig Abresch, rector of the Gymnasium in Zwolle, presenting the book as a prize to Wilt Gerrit Jan van Rhemenshuizen (1757-1827), when he advanced from the second to last to the final class. From 1781 on he was member of the "Ridderschap" of Overijssel, and in 1814 he was appointed member of the Provincial States of Gelderland (NNBW IX, cols. 860-861). The binding (12 cm thick!) was made by what Storm van Leeuwen calls the First Zwolle Prize Bindery (active 1766-1789), and he suggests it was operated by Simon Clement (ca. 1725?-1795).

      Paris, 1771. Quarto. Contemporary paper boards, original paper label (ink inscription faded). 20th-century bookplate on front pastedown. Titlepage printed in red and black with engraved vignette. Titlepage slightly soiled and age- toned. Slight age-toning at edges and occasional minor foxing, one leaf at rear dampstained. Edges untrimmed. A very good copy. First edition of the account of French explorer Kerguelen- Trémarec's voyage in the North Sea, including the coasts of Iceland, Greenland, and Norway, undertaken in 1767 and 1768. A second edition was published the following year in Amsterdam and Leipzig, and an English translation appeared in the first volume of John Pinkerton's collection of voyages and travels issued in the early 19th century. According to the preface, the purpose of the expedition was to "give protection and encouragement to the cod fishermen on the coast of Iceland, and to preserve order among the French fishermen" (Cox). Complementing the three folding engraved maps are several plans and coastal profiles and four fine plates depicting the indigenous peoples of the Arctic regions. Kerguelen- Trémarec's later expeditions included a voyage to the South Seas, where he discovered the Kerguelen and Desolation islands in the Antarctic in 1772.

        Remarques sur le militaire des Turcs et des Russes.

      Breslau, Wilhelm Theophil Korn, 1771. - 8vo. 264 pp. With 3 folding engr. plates. Contemp. calf with giltstamped red label to gilt spine. Marbled endpapers. All edges red. Second, enlarged edition, published a year after the first and now including "diverses observations sur les grandes actions qui se sont passées dans la dernière guerre d’Hongrie, et dans la présente en Moldavie". This is the first work of the Swiss-born De Warnery (1720-86), published in a German translation as early as 1766 (purportedly against his own wishes): according to the author, never one to eschew self-aggrandizement, he was the first to "unmask the Turks" and show that they did not warrant the fear with which they were usually viewed (cf. ADB XLI, 176). The plates show suggestions for battle arrays. - Unobtrusive repairs to lower cover of the appealing binding. Variously browned and brownstained due to paper. Rare. Formerly in the Ottoman collection of the Swiss industrialist Herry W. Schaefer. Barbier IV, 257. Cf. Atabey 1321 (first ed. 1770). Not in Blackmer. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Contemporary marbled boards, spine with black gilt lettered label. First edition of this scarce work, to which the author contributed also the drawings and engravings of the plates (except for the title-vignette which was done by Bissel). Otto Fridrich Müller (1730-1784) was the author of a splendid work on the zoology of Denmark 'Zoologia Danica'. As a person of the Age of Enlightenment his interest was broad and he was 'the foremost representative of the Linnaean period in Denmark' (Snorrason 1974). "From 1774 until 1784, he had an amazing and steady output of publications. In the fields neglected by Linnaeus and his followers, Müller made strong contributions to knowledge of Infusoria, Hydrachnidae, Tardigrada, Vermes, Mollusca."

        TRAVELS INTO NORTH AMERICA. CONTAINING ITS NATURAL HISTORY, AND A CIRCUMSTANTIAL ACCOUNT OF ITS PLANTATIONS AND AGRICULTURE IN GENERAL...THE CIVIL, ECCLESIASTICAL AND COMMERCIAL STATE OF THE COUNTRY

      Warrington, 1771. 19th-century three-quarter calf, spines gilt. Internally quite clean. Very good. The first English edition, translated by John Reinhold Forster, after the original Swedish edition published in Stockholm in 1753-61. Kalm was in America in 1748 and 1749, using Philadelphia as his base of operations. Much of the first volume is devoted to his observations on the country around that city; much of the second volume relates to his sojourn in the Swedish settlements in southern New Jersey; and the remaining volume concerns his journey north through New York to Montreal and Quebec, and his experiences there in 1749. "One of the most reliable eighteenth-century accounts of American natural history, social organization, and political situation. Kalm gives an especially important account of the American Swedish settlements" - Streeter. This is also an important work of natural history and botany. Kalm was a student of Linnaeus, and he gathered impressive collections during his American travels. He was also a close friend of American naturalist John Bartram and travelled with him into New York State. The text is accompanied by an excellent and large map, "A New and Accurate Map of Part of North America...," which shows the northeastern section of North America from Virginia north and west to Ohio.

        Mantissa Plantarum altera generum editionis VI. & specierum editionis II.

      - Holmiae, L. Salvii, 1771. pp. (6), 143-588. Contemporary half calf, gilt ornamented spine with gilt lettered label. A fine copy of the second 'Mantissa' which was published separately, in a much too small edition. It is an indispensable supplement to the 'Species Plantarum'. It also contains tucked away a zoological appendix, in fact the second appendix 'Regni animalis appendix' (pp. 521-552). W. Junk in 1935 made a reprint of these two appendices 'Linné Systema Naturae: Appendices Zoologicae. Holmiae 1768-1771. together with a commentary. "Der II. Nachtrag enthält auf 32 Seiten 123 Tiere (34 Vertebrata, 49 Insekten. und 40 Vermes, die allerdings grössenteils Mollusken sind" (Junk p. 8).The second 'Mantissa' is a very rare item. Already in 1916 Dr. W. Junk stated: 'Jetzt fast unauffindbar' and in his '5o Jahre Antiquar' he calls it a 'Rarissimum'."Linnaeus should be granted the last word on his taxonomic method. The preface to the second part of his 'Mantissa', dated 1 September 1771, contains this summary, composed in 'the twilight of his life'. It is given here in Svenson's translation (1945): 'Some botanists talk loudly about the 'Natural Orders' in place of a method, but so long as there is no essential character of an order, by which the genera can be combined or distinguished from those of different orders, these orders remain as a bell without a clapper. However, their use in other respects may be of the greatest importance' (Stafleu, Linnaeus and the Linnaeans p. 139). Small piece of paper cut away and replaced at the lower margin of the title-page not affecting the text.Provenance: Stamp of Joh. Eustach von Görtz, Prussian diplomat (1737-1821) on title-page.Hunt 596; Hulth 25; Sandberg, A catalogue of the works of Linnaeus no. 114; Stafleu & Cowan 4831. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        VOYAGE AUTOUR DU MONDE, PAR LA FRÉGATE DU ROI LA BOUDEUSE ET LA FLUTE L'ÉTOILE, EN 1766, 1767, 1768 & 1769

      Paris, 1771. Half title. Contemporary mottled calf, gilt, leather label. Minor shelf wear. Small contemporary bookplate of the Duc de Decrès on front pastedown. Very minor foxing in margins of half title and last leaf. A remarkably bright and clean copy. Fine. First edition of this important work. Bougainville first undertook an expedition to the Falkland Islands and Patagonia, at his own expense, to secure them for French colonization. To avoid possible conflict due to Spain's envy of this acquisition, France gave up the territory to her. The narrative of that expedition was related in THE HISTORY OF A VOYAGE TO THE MALOUINE ISLANDS... (Paris, 1770). After delivering the Falklands to Spain, Bougainville was ordered across the Pacific to the East Indies, and then home. The completion of the three-year voyage marked the first official French circumnavigation and inspired much French interest in the Pacific islands. The party collected abundant natural history information concerning the regions visited; a chapter on the Falklands gives the history of their settlement as well. The expedition stopped at many South Sea islands, among them Tahiti, and included is a long section on that island as well as a vocabulary of the natives. Bougainville was in Buenos Aires when the order arrived for the expulsion of the Jesuits from Paraguay, which he describes in detail. An extraordinary capstone to this remarkable voyage was that Bougainville lost only seven out of two hundred men. "Bougainville also touched at the Moluccas, Batavia, and Mauritius before he arrived once again in France in 1769. Although Bougainville made only a few important discoveries, he created a great deal of interest among the French in the Pacific, which resulted in the voyages of Marc-Joseph Marion de Fresne and Jean François de La Pérouse. The largest island in the Solomons and two straits in the Pacific bear his name, and the tropical flowering vine called bougainvillea was also named for him. Bougainville later took part in the American Revolution, survived the French Revolution, and was made a senator and count of the Empire by Napoleon I. Bougainville's accounts of Pacific Islanders in this work echoed Jean Jacques Rousseau's concepts of the 'noble savage,' and inspired Denis Diderot to write his denunciation of European contact with indigenous peoples" - Hill. This copy belonged to Admiral, later Duc, Denis Decrès, Napoleon's Minister for the Navy and the Colonies from 1801 to 1814, with his bookplate on the front pastedown. Decrès was the Minister directly responsible for Nicholas Baudin's voyage to Australia. Therefore, there could have been much instructive value in the present volume for Decrès, who perhaps used Bougainville's experiences with regard to Baudin, to assist in the various enquiries into voyage events, many of them relating to Baudin's unfortunate command. A highly distinguished French naval provenance for one of the country's legendary travel narratives.
