        Extracto, ? Relacion methodica, y puntual de los autos de reconocimiento, practicado en virtud de commission del se?or presidente de la Real Audiencia de este reino de Guatemala.

      Pueblo de Mixco [Guatemala]: Impreso en la oficina de A. Sanchez Cubillas Folio (29.5 cm; 11.675"). [2], 86 pp. (without final leaf with one erratum).. 1774 Following the ruin of Santiago de los Caballeros by the big earthquake of 1773, the capital of Guatemala was moved first to the little town of Mixco and then later to the location of the present site of Guatemala City. Offered here is the highly important report of the commission headed by Juan Gonz?lez Bustillo on that devastating July, 1773 earthquake: It occupies pp. 1–55 and is followed by "Prosigue la relacion, ô Extracto de todo lo que resulta èvacuado en la Junta general, y demas que se ha tenido presente hasta la conclusion del assunto de translacion, e informe, que debe hacerse à Su Magestad" on pp. 57–86.The careful, lengthy, and contemporary reports present here detail the day's events, give the sequence of the destruction of various buildings and areas of the city, recount salvage and evacuation efforts, etc. The writers (and the citizens) erroneously blamed the nearby volcanos for causing the tremors and quaking, but that was logical at the time. Seeking historical perspective, the commissioners make significant and informed comparisons with earlier earthquakes.=> This document is one of the very few printed in the temporary capital of Mixco, a press having been salvaged from the ruins in the former capital. Thus, Mixco was the second city/town to have a press in Central America, and then, for only a short time—approximately two years.In addition to being important for its contents and in the realm of printing history, the González Bustillo report is uncommon: We trace only half a dozen copies in U.S. libraries. Modern full calf, very plain style. Without the final leaf with one erratum on it.

Mai 1763 ward er in Greifswald auf Grund seiner Inauguraldissertation: \"De debito ex mercibus venditis residuo per novationem in mutuum gratuitum immutato jure praelationis ex jure Lubecensi non gaudente\" zum Doctor beider Rechte promovirt und habilitirte sich bald darauf als Docent an der Universität, wählte jedoch später die praktische Laufbahn und ward ausübender Rechtsgelehrter.

      [New York, 1774. Lightly silked. Inscribed in later ink in lower margin of p.[2]: "Printed by John Holt." Very good. In a half brown morocco and cloth folding case, spine gilt. A protest of the Boston Port Act, passed by Parliament on March 31, 1774. The act, designed to punish Boston for the Tea Party, ordered the port of Boston closed until the inhabitants reimbursed the East India Company and King's treasury for the tea destroyed and customs duty lost on Dec. 16, 1773. "Because Boston alone was punished, Lord North believed the colonies would not 'take fire.' It was a costly mistake: the cry was raised in America that the Port Act was merely a prelude to a 'Massacre of American Liberty'; the colonies rallied to Boston's aid; and the Continental Congress was called to concert opposition to the mother country" - DAH. The present copy is apparently a variant of the broadsheet recorded by Evans, in which "Affairs" is spelled "Affaires." Evans ascribes printing to the press of John Holt. ESTC locates only three copies, at the Massachusetts Historical Society, John Carter Brown Library, and New-York Historical Society. Rare.

      Philadelphia, 1774. Half antique calf and marbled boards. A bit tanned. Overall just about very good. The extremely rare John Dunlap second edition, and first obtainable edition, of Thomas Jefferson's first book, a central document of the Revolution. "This is Jefferson's first separately printed book and, according to Randolph Adams is one of the four fundamental works relating to the Revolution...The SUMMARY VIEW should be required reading for those who today are inclined to minimize and excuse the conduct of the British towards our ancestors" - Streeter. Jefferson submitted this petition to the Virginia convention, with the intent that it be sent to King George. Because of its strong tone it was never sent, but printed copies circulated in America and a London edition appeared as well. It was an extraordinary debut, and its success was probably responsible for Jefferson's election to the Second Continental Congress and his role in drafting the Declaration of Independence. The first edition of the SUMMARY VIEW was printed in a small edition at Williamsburg, also in 1774, and survives in seven known copies, six in institutions (the last copy at auction, in 1991, realized $231,000, and is in a private collection). Another copy of the present edition realized $27,500 the same year. The present copy, with only the final paragraph in facsimile, was sold by this firm to the collector Laird Park, and appeared in his sale in 2000. We are pleased to now offer it again. The two copies mentioned seem to be the only ones to trade in the last thirty years.

        LEGENDE DU PLAN DU PORT-LOUIS [manuscript caption title]

      [N.p., but most likely Mauritius, Early to mid- 19th century]. Two joined sheets. Old folds. Some ink burn at the neatline, causing separations. Light wear and soiling, a few small tears at edges. Small losses at central fold, affecting a few letters of legend. Very good. Handsome and highly detailed manuscript map of Port Louis, the capital of Mauritius, done in pen and watercolor, showing the town, surrounding countryside, and the harbor, with many points keyed and identified in the accompanying legend. The plots of land in the town are done in orange and brown, denoting developed and undeveloped parcels. The extensive battlements and defences are each identified. The map comprises two- thirds of the sheet, while the remaining third contains the extensive key. A pencil notation at the bottom of the sheet indicates that the map was done by M. d'Estaing and predates a memoire written by him in 1774. If so, this is almost certainly a later copy of that map. In his bibliography of Mauritius, Toussaint does indicate two maps done by M. d'Estaing in 1774, though neither matches this precisely. The Dutch were the first Europeans to become interested in the island, taking possession in 1598. After exploiting the island's dense forests for a century and introducing the cultivation of sugar cane and cotton, in 1710 the Dutch abandoned the colony. The French soon claimed it as "Ile de France," and the island remained under the control of the French East India Company until 1767. During the long war between France and England at the beginning of the 19th century, Mauritius proved to be an important strategic naval base, and as a result the British took charge of the island in 1810, and the Treaty of Paris confirmed official British possession in 1814. It remained an important sugar producing colony, and in the 20th century agricultural production was expanded to include tea, rice, and other produce.

      New York, 1774. Loss of the "o" and "e" in the first two words of the title. Minor soiling and wear. Tipped to a larger sheet. About very good. Broadside concerning the election of delegates to the First Continental Congress, responding to Alexander McDougall's "To the freeholders, freemen, and inhabitants of the city and county of New-York" and another broadside entitled "To the freeborn citizens of New-York," authored by someone signing himself as "A Moderate Man." There was significant debate over whether or not to elect representatives to the first Continental Congress, followed by further debate over the best method to go about electing those representatives once the idea took hold. This broadside refutes the two others that deal with this subject, in blistering language. The author writes: "It must be a lame cause, that will admit of such lame advocates. When the blind lead blind, it is no wonder they both fall into the ditch." ESTC records only two copies, at the New York Public Library and the Library Company of Philadelphia. We are aware of one other in a private collection. Rare.

      Philadelphia: Coffee House, 1774. [bound with:] JOURNAL OF THE PROCEEDINGS OF THE CONGRESS, HELD AT PHILADELPHIA, MAY 10, 1775. Philadelphia: Printed and sold by William and Thomas Bradford..., 1775. [4],iv,239pp. Contemporary calf, raised bands. Front board detached. Extremities rather worn, some scuffing. An occasional fox mark, else internally crisp and very good. With contemporary ownership inscription of Nicholas Cresswell, possibly the young Englishman of that name who travelled extensively in the American colonies in 1774-77 (see THE JOURNAL OF NICHOLAS CRESSWELL, New York, 1924). In a half morocco and cloth box. The Journals of the first two Continental Congresses, describing meetings from Sept. 5 to Oct. 20, 1774 to the second Congress from May 10 to Sept. 5, 1775, among the most basic documents of the American Revolution. The Journal for 1774 is the very rare issue of 144 pages, with the misdated state of the titlepage ("DCC,LXXIV"), which likely precedes in publication sequence the 132- page issue with the correctly dated title. Committees of Correspondence resolved to hold a Continental Congress in June of 1774, and delegates from twelve colonies (none from Georgia) gathered in Philadelphia in the fall. It included many of the most distinguished men in America: Samuel and John Adams, Roger Sherman, John Jay, Joseph Galloway, John Dickinson, Richard Henry Lee, George Washington, Edmund Pendleton, and Henry Middleton, among others. The Congress succeeded in taking numerous important steps. On Oct. 14 they adopted a Declaration of Rights, and agreed to an Association governing imports and exports and boycotting British goods. They also drafted an Address to the People of Great Britain and another Address to the Inhabitants of the Province of Quebec. They agreed to reassemble on May 10, 1775 for what was to be the fateful Congress that broke with England. The journals of the second Continental Congress, also included in the volume at hand, cover the proceedings from May 10, 1775 through adjournment on Sept. 5, 1775. The activities of this summer, against the background of open conflict in Massachusetts, are among the most dramatic of the Revolutionary era. Included are reports on Lexington-Concord, the address to the Inhabitants of Canada inviting them to join the other thirteen colonies, numerous military matters, the Declaration of the Causes and Necessity for Taking Up Arms, the Olive Branch Petition, the American negotiations with the Six Nations, and other crucial material. These journals, like those of the first Congress, are quite rare. The titlepage for the Journal of 1774 bears the famous seal of the Congress, showing twelve hands representing the twelve participating colonies supporting a column topped with a Liberty Cap and resting on the Magna Charta.

        Anleitung zu der Pflanzenkenntniss und derselben nützlichsten Anwendung. Mit hundert illuminirten Tafeln.

      - Zürich, Verlag des Waysenhauses, 1774. Folio (366 x 230mm). pp. 129, (1, blank), 1 leaf of 'Entwurf der Tafeln', title with engraved vignette, 2 handcoloured engraved plates of floral detail and 101 fine handcoloured woodcuts on 100 leaves of flowering plants. Contemporary boards. First and only edition, documenting a remarkable survival. The 101 woodcuts are printed from the original blocks of Fuchs 'De Stirpium historia', 1542, the most celebrated herbal ever published. "The only apparent difference is the removal of the (printed) plant-names from the old plates and the printing of new ones at the bottom. It is interesting to compare the handcoloring in the eighteenth-century volume with that in its great sixteenth-century predecessor" (Hunt). In the preface Schinz explains how he discovered the original woodblocks of Fuchs and how they were coloured in the Zurich orphanage. The large woodcuts are beautifully hand-coloured. Christoph Salomon Schinz (1764-1847) was a Swiss physician and botanist at Zürich.Hunt 640; Nissen BBI, 1761. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Jesuitisches Reich in Paragay [Paraguay] durch Originaldocumente der Gesellschaft Jesu bewiesen von dem aus dem Jesuiterorden verstoßenen Pater Ibagnez. Aus dem Italienischen [von Anton Ernst Klausing].

      Cölln [ie Hannover] Peter Marteau [ie Hahn] 1774 - Kl. 8°. (8) 263 (1) Seiten. Halbleder der Zeit mit dreiseitig gefärbtem Schnitt. (Vorsatzblatt entfernt, ein Blatt im Inhaltsverzeichnis mit zwei kleinen Löchern mit kleinem Textverlust, im Druckbild gebräunt). Sabin 34147. GV, Bd. 68, 147. Herzog 11, 101. - Erschien vier Jahre nach dem Tod des Ibañez de Echavarri. Das spanische Original wurde ins Italienische übertragen, aus dem Italienischen übersetzte Klausing dann ins Deutsche. Mit einem Vorwort des Verlegers und einem weiteren von Klausing. -- Historisch befindet sich die Schrift zwischen dem Ende der Vorherrschaft der Jesuiten in Paraguay 1767 und der späteren Staatsgründung im Jahr 1811. Bernhard Ibañez war bei seiner Einreise nach Paraguay noch Jesuit und büßte seine Zugehörigkeit zum Orden während des Aufenthalts ein. Er kritisierte das "weltliche Regiment", die Anhäufung von Reichtum und besonders die Angaben, die hierzu gegenüber der spanischen Administration gemacht wurden und die er sich in seiner Schrift im Detail vornimmt und widerlegt. Die Jesuiten hatten in mehr als 160 Jahre in Paraguay die zahlreichen selbstverwalteten Enklaven, "Reduktionen" genannt, zu wirtschaftlichem Erfolg geführt und dem Einflußbereich der spanischen Krone schließlich entzogen. Die Schrift des Ibañez de Echavarria dokumentierte das. 1767 wurden die "Reduktionen" aufgelöst. Ibañez verließ Paraguay, kehrte nach Spanien zurück, wo wenig später starb. 1,000 gr.

        Naauwkeurige waarneemingen omtrent de veranderingen van veele insekten of gekorvene diertjes.

      Amsterdam, Johannes Sluyter, 1774. - Large folio (430 x 270 mm). (4), 34, (2) pp. With etched and engr. vignette on title page (2 people in a woods, in a decorative cartouche including 2 butterflies), and 33 numbered etched and engr. plates showing 70 kinds of insects (numbered in the text), vignette and all plates in original colour. Contemp. boards covered with sprinkled paper, sewn on 4 vellum tapes. The second, greatly enlarged edition of a set of finely etched and engraved plates depicting the metamorphosis of 70 sorts of butterflies, moths and other flying insects in their natural surroundings, the specimens collected, drawn, etched and engraved, and the descriptions written by Jacob l'Admiral (1700-70), first published in 1740 with only 25 plates. The present edition adds 8 plates prepared (along with their descriptive text) by l'Admiral but not previously published, along with a 2-page foreword by the editor, Martinus Houttuyn (1720-98). Most plates show the species as egg, larva, pupa and adult, both male and female, placed on the plants they frequent in their natural habitat. Scientifically it was a great advance over all that went before, including the pioneering work of Maria Sibylla Merian. The present foreword tells us that l'Admiral began studying butterflies at the age of ten and gives Houttuyn's personal recollections of l'Admiral and his work. He collected the specimens during thirty years of travel and intended the first edition with 25 plates to be one of four parts for a total of 100 plates. He finished only 8 additional plates before his death in 1770 and had not yet published them or his descriptions. After l'Admiral's death the bookseller Sluyter bought all the copperplates at auction and Houttuyn prepared the new descriptions from l'Admiral's manuscript. A few plates were revised after the first edition, probably by l'Admiral himself. Plate XII depicts a tulip. - With the 1896 bookplate (signed "TM") of "Tine. v.

      Printed by William and Thomas Bradford, at the London Coffee House, Philadelphia 1774 - (7 3/4 x 4 3/4 inches). [4],144pp. Expertly bound to style in quarter 18th century russia over period marbled paper covered boards, flat spine divided into compartments with gilt double fillets, morocco lettering piece in the second compartment, the others with a repeat decoration in gilt. Housed in a modern full blue morocco box. The journal of the first Continental Congress. The Journals of the first Continental Congress, describing meetings from Sept. 5 to Oct. 20, 1774, is one of the most basic documents of the American Revolution. This is the very rare issue of 144 pages, with the correctly dated state of the titlepage, probably issued several months after the first (with 132pp. only, omitting the Petition to the King, and the correct date in Roman numerals). Committees of Correspondence, responding to the Intolerable Acts passed by Parliament in the wake of the Boston Tea Party, resolved to hold a Continental Congress in June of 1774. Delegates from twelve colonies (none from Georgia) gathered in Philadelphia in the fall. It included many of the most distinguished men in America: Samuel and John Adams, Roger Sherman, John Jay, Joseph Galloway, John Dickinson, Richard Henry Lee, George Washington, Edmund Pendleton, and Henry Middleton, among others. The Congress succeeded in taking numerous important steps. On Oct. 14 they adopted a Declaration of Rights, and agreed to an Association governing imports and exports and boycotting British goods. They also drafted and sent an Address to the People of Great Britain and another Address to the Inhabitants of the Province of Quebec. They agreed to reassemble on May 10, 1775. This issue of the Journals adds twelve highly important pages of text, consisting of the address to King George III ("The Petition to the King") arguing the American position, asking for redress, and promising loyalty if the status quo of 1764 was restored. This text was agreed upon and voted in executive session on Oct. 1, 1774, and probably reached England in early November. This text does not appear in the 132pp. issue, probably published in November, because it was still secret. The Petition certainly reached Lord North, but it is unclear the King ever saw it. By mid-January 1775, as the flow of events progressed and it seemed unlikely there would be a response (there never was), it was published in this second issue of the Journals, possibly issued on Jan. 17-18, 1775. The titlepage for the Journal of 1774 bears the famous seal of the Congress, showing twelve hands representing the twelve participating colonies supporting a column topped with a Liberty Cap and resting on the Magna Charta. Rare and desirable. Evans 13737, Howes J263, "aa." [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Tractado de paz, de navegacao, e de commercio entre o Senhor Rey D. Jozé I° eo Imperador de Marrocos assignado em 13 de Novembro de 1774.

      Palacio de N. S.a da Ajuda (Lisboa), 13. XI. 1774. - 4to. Title and 24 pp., all inset into folio leaves. Marbled spine. Rare contemporary manuscript copy of the peace treaty, in 22 articles, concluded between King José I of Portugal and the Sultanate of Morocco. After the Reconquista, Portugal had expanded into Africa, starting with the territory of Morocco, by occupying cities and establishing fortified outposts along the Atlantic coast. The Portuguese seized numerous Moroccan cities and built coastal fortresses there, but most of these had to be abadoned soon. When Tangier was ceded to England in 1661 and Ceuta finally handed over to Spain in 1668, Portugal's direct involvement in Morocco had essentially come to a close, and when King Juan I abandoned Mazagan under the pressure of Mohamed ben Abdallah in 1769, Moroccan reconquest was complete. Five years later, in 1774, the Governments of Morocco and Portugal concluded a Peace and Friendship Agreement, one of the oldest bilateral agreements of both nations. Ever since his accession in 1757, Sultan Mohamed had sought to adopt the European trading system, while simultaneously safeguarding the spirit of Islam amongst his peoples. To this end, he ratified earlier peace treaties with Great Britain and with the Netherlands, then went on to sign several more, beginning with Denmark, Sweden and Venice; similar treaties were closed with France and Spain (both 1767) and Tuscany (1782). A fundamental principle that was enshrined in all of them was rooted in the annual payment of a fee in cash or in kind. - Slight browning to inset leaves. Apparently removed from a 19th-century document collection, with the original leaves remargined to folio size. A principal document of Luso-Moroccan relations.

      London. 1774. - [2],1251-1252pp. Folio. Two leaves, in three-quarter calf and marbled boards. Near fine. The Boston Tea Party of December 16, 1773 unified both the protesting colonists in America and the forces of reaction in Great Britain in their respective positions. News of it arrived in London in January, 1774. From the point of view of the English government of Lord North, which commanded a firm majority in Parliament, the Tea Party represented an outrageous act of defiance which must be quashed. As soon as news arrived in London, legislation was prepared to punish the defiant colonists and bring the colonies, especially Massachusetts, firmly to heel. Their goal was to punish Massachusetts for the Tea Party and extend direct Royal control at the expnse of popular liberty. Between March 31 and June 22, 1774, five acts were passed which became known collectively as the Coercive or Intolerable Acts. As news of each reached America, with troops to enforce it, a new spirit of defiance was kindled. Among these was the Quartering Act, passed June 2, 1774 and aimed specifically at Massachusetts. It allowed for the lodging and billeting of British soldiers with families and on private property. This shifted some of the cost of maintaining an army in the colony to the colonists, besides the difficulty of having soldiers in homes. Of all the acts, this directly affected the most people. The Intolerable Acts brought strong and immediate reaction throughout the colonies. The most important was the calling of a Continental Congress, first proposed by Rhode Island on May 17, four days after General Gage took over the government of Massachusetts as a Military Governor. A key step on the road to Revolution.

        A Political Survey of Britain.

      for the author; and sold by Richardson and Urquhart, and others, London 1774 - Two volumes, large quarto, upper joints of both volumes just starting, a little inoffensive wear to the extremities; yet a fine set in magnificent tree calf, flat spines featuring gilt foliate ornament with green and crimson morocco labels. Redolent of the 1780s in its strictly contemporary binding, Campbell's Political Survey describes the England that the First Fleet left behind.More than dry political economy, the survey contains a wealth of information regarding the trades, agriculture, transportation, fisheries, seaports, markets and natural resources of Britain. The author was appointed the King's agent for the province of Georgia in 1765; accordingly this survey is rich with reference to the American and West Indian colonies (although the possibility of revolution is conspicuously absent). The subtitle itself says much of the author's aspirations for national self-sufficiency: the book is 'intended to shew That we have not as yet approached near the Summit of Improvement, but that it will afford Employment to many Generations before they push to their utmost Extent the natural advantages of Great Britain.'This set, with its elegant binding, bears the bookplates and ownership signature of Alexander Allardyce (c.1743-1801), a Scottish slaver who made his fortune in the West Indies. Upon his return home, Allardyce entered parliament and spent lavishly on the improvement of Dunottar House near Aberdeen and its magnificent walled garden. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Fifth edition (second complete) of "the most important scientific book of eighteenth-century America" (PMM) - following the fourth edition of 1769 - together with printings of other texts. Earlier editions of Frankli's electricity were published in separate parts. "The most dramatic result of Franklins researches was the proof that lightning is really an electrical phenomenon. Others had made such a suggestion before him--even Newton himself--but it was he who provided the experimental proof. In 1752 he flew a kite in a thunderstorm and attached a key to its string. From this he collected electric charges in a Leiden jar and showed that atmospheric and frictional or machine-made electricity are the same.His reputation as a scientist was immediately established by the publication of the results of his researches in a series of letters addressed to Peter Collinson, a London merchant and naturalist."

A second volume was published in 1779 but the two volumes are rarely found together. The 2nd volume was clearly an afterthought unplanned in 1774. Kress 7066. Goldsmiths 11103. Higgs 5881. Einaudi 6093. Young's Political Arithmetic> is probably his most obvious excursion into economic theory (Young called it 'one of my best works'). It was largely motivated by his enduring drive to increase the profitability and product of agriculture. Nevertheless there is much here on wider economic issues; Young enthusiastically, for example, tackled what he labelled as 'false propositions'. Among these he included matters such as taxes on consumption, Quesnay's Maxims> in the Encyclopedie>, population, 'false ideas of the French writers', and so forth. The book was translated into several European languages. John Cator (1728-1806) was a wealthy timber merchant and landowner and Member of Parliament. Among other things, he was responsible for the layout of much of the area around Blackheath and Beckenham (Kent), which he transformed into a significant suburban town with opulent houses situated along wide tree-lined avenues.

        Autographed Endorsement Signed "Jas. Warren Sheriff" on the back of a partly printed document signed

      Plymouth, 1774. unbound. 2 pages (front and back), 6.75 x 8.25 inches, Boston, February 18, 1774 -- a warrant requesting that the Sheriff of Suffolk & Plymouth Counties attach the property of certain individuals, and to assure that said persons appear before the Court of Common Pleas safely. On the back, Warren responds to the warrant which he has executed: "Plymouth, March 7th, 1774, explaining in detail that he has attached a large piece of land, including the boundaries and related landmarks, and requesting a Sheriffs fee of 8 pounds / 6 shillings." Ironically, on the opposite fold from Warren's endorsement appears a clerk's notation: "Mr. Officer, Attach sufficient - or hold to Bail by order of John Adams," written just two months after the Boston Tea Party! Uniformly toned with weak folds including one that has been lightly reinforced with archival tape. The endorsement by James Warren is boldly written, taking up one complete panel, 3 x 6.5 inches, with a dark clear signature. An exceptional association piece in very good(-) condition. American patriot and arguably one of the most important figures in the instigation of hostilities between the Colonies and the British Government. He was one of the founders of the Sons of Liberty, fought at Bunker Hill, Major General of the State Militia, a planner of the Boston Tea Party, and lifelong friend of John Adams. In addition, he was a correspondent and adviser to Patrick Henry, Samuel Adams, John Hancock, Thomas Jefferson and George Washington.

First and only editions of the Dutch translation by Jac. van Ekers of a description of Arabia, Egypt and the Middle East (ad 1) and an account of a voyage to Arabia and surrounding countries (ad 2). Both works were originally written by the Danish traveler and surveyor Carsten Niebuhr (1733-1815) and published in German, in Copenhagen in 1772 under the titles: Beschreibung von Arabien, and Reisenbeschreibung nach Arabien und andern umliegenden Lander. Both works were also translated into French and English. In 1760 Niebuhr was invited to join a scientific expedition to Egypt. Other members of the expedition were Friedrich Christian von Haven (a Danish linguist and orientalist), Christian Carl Kramer (a Danish physician and zoologist), Georg Baurenfeind (an artist from southern Germany), Berggren (a Swedish ex-soldier) and Pehr Forrskal (a Swedish botanist). In January 1761, the expedition sailed from Copenhagen, Denmark to Alexandria, Egypt. The members of the expedition spent a year in Egypt, visiting Suez and Mount Sinai. They left Suez in October 1762 and sailed to Yemen. In May 1763 they reached Mocha where Von Haven and Forrskal died from malaria. In August 1763 Baurenfeind and Berggren died, followed by Kramer in February 1764. Niebuhr was the only one left to continue the expedition. In 1764, he explored India, sailing from Bombay to Muscat, as well as Shiraz, Babylon, Baghdad, Mosul, and Aleppo. He spent some time in Persepolis in 1765 where he has made very detailed drawings and maps, which were used for more than a hundred years. In 1766, he explored Palestine before finally returning to Copenhagen on 20 November 1767, after a journey of seven years. When he returned to Copenhagen the Swedish government warmly welcomed him and paid the costs of engraving the plates to illustrate his accounts of the voyage. Both works are lavishly illustrated, having together 2 large maps of Yemen and 148 beautifully engraved maps, plans and views of all the regions Niebuhr visited. Location/localizacao: PCS
