        Manuscript Deeds - Vellum Indentures on Franklin's Estate

      Philadelphia, 1831. Philadelphia, 1831-1848. Four manuscript indentures on vellum, dealing with land titles owned and sold by the descendants of Benjamin Franklin, being properties and homes within Franklin Court. Dated 1831, 1836, 1846, and 1848, two of the documents pertain to a home constructed for Benjamin Franklin circa 1786 as a revenue property and situated on the south side of High Street [now Market Street], while the other two describe a home on a much smaller parcel of land on the portion of the courtyard that had been subdivided in 1812, evidently neighboring the aforementioned property. Documents range in size, the smallest measuring approximately 60 x 38 cm, and the largest 44 x 72 cm, and feature notable signatures, clerical annotations to verso, original red wax seals and paper seals. Mildly age-toning, otherwise in very good condition, beautifully preserved, significant and scarce documents in fine colonial hands. A history of heirs, owners and lessees of Benjamin Franklin's properties in Franklin Court, Philadelphia, is presented in original manuscript documents, and reveals the desirability and prestige associated with the address. Attracting the most reputable jewelers, a railroad magnate, a sugar plantation owner and cotton producer, a leading brewer, a victualler, a manufacturer of umbrellas, and a High Sheriff of the city. Two of the deeds are signed by Philadelphia aldermen. The earliest indenture is dated 9 July 1831, and is a lease agreement for a house and lot situated in what is now known as Franklin Court, and most likely constructed by Benjamin Franklin in 1786 as a revenue property. In 1820 it was inherited by Commodore Benjamin Franklin Bache (1801-1881), great grandson of America's founding father Benjamin Franklin, and nephew of famous journalist Benjamin Franklin Bache (1769-1798) after whom he was named. Herein, Benjamin Franklin Bache grants use of the property to respected Philadelphia jewelers and silversmiths, the Thibault brothers. The brothers' parents having immigrated from France to the West Indies, then to Philadelphia during the rebellion in Saint Dominigue, Francis (born 1787), Frederick (born in 1788), and Felix(born in 1791) learned the trade from their father. In the 1830s there were numerous jewelers and silversmiths operating within Franklin Court. This document reveals that the home was situated within the same city block as Benjamin Franklin's own home, and may very well be one of the three homes built by him in 1786. "Franklin Court" as the property is known today, was the site of an exquisite home built between 1763-65 for Benjamin Franklin, and where his wife and daughter lived while he served in England as an agent representing several colonies. Franklin resided at the house in 1775-76, went abroad as a diplomat in France, finally settling at the house for the final years of his life, from 1785-90. The Franklin house was demolished by his son-in-law in 1812. Only the foundation remains today as its walls were collapsed into the building's cellar, and subsequently, a roadway was constructed on top of it all, sealing the house ruins and all of its contents. To ascertain the precise location of the home, and any surviving remains, the site was excavated in several phases beginning in 1953. In his final years, between 1786-1787, Franklin commissioned the construction of 3 new brick houses on Market Street; one was to replace his home; one was to rent to tenants, the third possibly also a rental. The home described in the present lease indenture is quite conceivably that which was built in 1786 by Benjamin Franklin as a rental property, and which today forms an archaeological exhibit called "Fragments of Franklin Court". It has been ascertained to have been a rental property where a prosperous merchant kept shop, and lived with his family, that the house was 3 stories high, covered 33 feet square, and included 10 rooms. The present document also describes a brick house of three stories, which is being rented to successful silversmiths. Although Benjamin Franklin's home was demolished in 1812, this building may have survived as late as 1955, when further archaeological research required the demolitions of extant properties. The courtyard sits between Market and Chestnut Streets, and 3rd and 4th Streets, exactly as described in this vellum deed. It can still be entered via the original brick passageway on Market Street, or, through the gates and up the cobblestone path from Chestnut Street. [Market Street was formerly called High Street as seen in these deeds.] The lessor, Benjamin Franklin Bache (1801-1881) was born in Franklin, Albemarle, Virginia, and died in Brooklyn, New York. He was a surgeon in the United States Navy before and during the Civil War. He was a great-grandson of the Revolutionary War statesman and author, Benjamin Franklin Bache (1769-1798). He married Anna Cambridge Lawson (1798-1876), who was born and died in Philadelphia. His Father is William Bache (1773-1820) of Philadelphia, and his mother is Catherine Bache (1770-1820), both of whom are named in these documents. His uncle is Benjamin F. Bache, I, (1769-1798) the famous Philadelphia journalist. His grandfather is Richard Bache, Sr. (1737-1811), 2nd US Postmaster General, born in Yorkshire and died in Philadelphia. His grandmother is Sarah "Sally" Bache (née Franklin) (1743-1808), the daughter of Benjamin Franklin, which means his paternal great-grandfather was Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790) who signed the United States "Declaration of Independence." Excerpts from the lease indenture dated 9 July 1831: "This indenture... between Benjamin Franklin Bache of Penscola Florida... and Anna his wife... Frederick Thibault and Felix Thibault... merchants... " "... in consideration of the sum of One Thousand Dollars lawful money of the United States..." "... Three Story Brick Messuage and Lot of Ground Situate on the West side of Franklin Place between High and Chestnut Streets and Delaware Third and Fourth Streets in the City of Philadelphia, Beginning at the distance of one hundred and twenty-eight feet and six inches from the South Side of High Street, thence extending Northwardly Seventeen feet and six inches, thence Westwardly to Seth Craig's Ground fourteen feet and two inches, thence Southwardly along said Craig's ground seventeen feet and six inches, and thence Eastwardly fourteen feet and two inches to the beginning..." "Being the same premises which William Bache and wife by Deed of May 22. 1812.... to convey as the survivor of the said William Bache [Benjamin Franklin's grandson] and his wife... Catherine, who survived her said husband, did by her will dated June 28. 1820... conveyed the same to the said Benjamin F. Bache..." "... To have and to hold the said Messuage and Lot of Ground... Frederick Thibault and Felix Thibault... as Tenants in Common." End excerpts. Pertaining to the same property and three story brick home, a second an equally interesting indenture dated 18 March 1848 again mentions the Bache family and transfers the title from Jacob and Mary Hart, to a successful brewer George Butz. He in turn endorses the deed for $1 to John Wright, an umbrella manufacturer. George Butz (1809-1883) of the Northern Liberties district in Philadelphia was a prominent brewer, in fact one of the two earliest brewers in Brewerytown, both of whom partnered in 1843 to form "Dithmar and Butz". [Frederick had established a brewery in 1835, Butz becoming his partner in 1843. By 1860 they produced some ten thousand barrells of porter and ale, subsequently opening a second brewery, which they sold in 1865.] There was also a George Butz Brewery opened in 1863 and closed in 1866. In 1833 George married Eliza Levan. This document bears several notable signatures. The original signature of brewer George Butz next to a red wax seal. Philadelphia alderman Chauncey Bulkley (1798-1860) signed the document in 3 places, and alderman George Erety Jr. (1806-1867) twice. [As well as his public service, Chauncey Bulkley is remembered for his service as Secretary and Treasurer of the Germantown and Norristown Railroad Co. from 1832-1833. George Erety was a prominent politician and attorney, President of the Board of Guardians of the Poor, and also associated with the Franklin Institute and the Jefferson Fire Insurance Company.] The following two indentures reflect the redevelopment of Franklin's courtyard into an income-producing property, which took place in 1812. This property and home is described as being bounded by Lot No. 24 on one side, and Lot No. 26 on the other. The 1836 document names America's founding father Benjamin Franklin in reference to a home and property initially owned by him, situated on a section of land on the west side of Franklin Court which had been divided by his descendants, this portion owned by Louis Bache [Benjamin Franklin's grandson] who died intestate. It represents the sale of the property, which included "a certain three story brick messuage and lot or piece of ground.... [with]... the common use and privilege of Franklin Court..." The lot [No. 25] measured fourteen feet seven inches by thirty-eight feet eleven inches, and was adjacent to a lot formerly owned by his brother William Bache who was also deceased by this time. This property was sold by auction for the payment of debts, the auction being held at the historic Merchants Coffee House on 1 November 1833, fetching $3,550. The purchaser was a victualler named Charles L. Cope. This document is signed by Philadelphia alderman and US marshall John Conrad. Colonel Louis Bache (1779-1819) was born in. Very Good.

        Handbuch der Naturgeschichte aller Vögel Deutschlands worin nach den sorgfältigsten Untersuchungen und den genauesten Beobachtungen mehr als 900 einheimische Vögel-Gattungen zur Begründung einer ganz neuen Ansicht und Behandlung ihrer Naturgeschichte vollständig beschrieben sind.

      Ilmenau, Voigt, 1831. 8vo (205 x 125mm). pp. xxiv, 1085, (3), with 47 hand-coloured engraved plates. Contemporary half calf, spine with gilt lettered red label (hinges skilfully repaired). The rare first edition of "a classic treatise on mid-European avifauna" (Wood 255). "In Folge eingehendster Specialkenntniss (erfuhr) die Grundlage des Systems, der Begriff der Art, eine Erweiterung insofern B. die Art schon als eine höhere systematische Gruppe fasste und die übereinstimmenden Individuen als Subspecies vereinigte." (Carus 710). "In this handbook, Brehm's chief work, the author gives his opinion on the system of Linnaeus, which is rejected as being too unnatural. The birds are divided into 23 orders which are again subdivided into genera, 'species', and 'subspecies' (Gattungen), by which the author understands birds resembling each other and mating with each other; whereas birds belonging to the same 'species' certainly bear a great resemblance to each other in most respects, but do not regularly mate with each other. Thus he went a step further than any other contemporary ornithologist in the division of birds into species" (Anker 66). The fine plates are after drawings by Bädeker and Th. Götz and engraved by W. Müller.//Nissen IVB, 140; Anker 105; Zimmer I, 90.

        O Precursor. @Nº 1 (of 3 issues).

      (London), [colophon] por C.S. Bingham, 27 September 1831. - Nº 1. 4°, unbound, but spine reinforced with strip of early paper (not affecting text). In good to very good condition. 8 pp. *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION of this little-known initial issue of a short-lived periodical written by Almeida Garrett in London, after he fled the rule of D. Miguel during the Lutas Liberaes. He returned to Portugal in 1832, marching on Porto with the Bravos de Mindelo led by D. Pedro IV. The present issue is a vehement appeal to all Portuguese to follow the lead of D. Pedro, the Duke of Bragança (formerly D. Pedro IV, King of Portugal, and before that D. Pedro I, Emperor of Brazil) against his brother the absolutist D. Miguel. It documents the gathering of troops in the Açores under the Conde de Vila Flor and gives a list of officers who had been taken prisoner, as well as a breakdown of the numbers of soldiers of various types (artillery of the line, caçadores, infantry, etc.) taken prisoner (1277) and of the "Força da columna expedicionaria constitucional" (1500).Canto refers to the present issue as the first, followed by the one of 4 October (paginated 9-12) and one of 11 October (paginated 13-16).The Visconde de Almeida Garrett (1799-1854) was a man of great talent and far-reaching interests: "As journalist, founder and editor of several short-lived newspapers, as a stylist and master of prose, his country's chief lyric poet in the first half of the nineteenth century . and greatest dramatist since the sixteenth; as politician and one of the most eloquent of all Portugal's orators, an enthusiastic if unscientific folk-lorist, a novelist, critic, diplomatist, soldier, jurist and judge, Almeida Garrett played many parts and with success" (Bell, @Portuguese Literature pp. 288-89).*** Canto, @Ensaio bibliograhico: catalogo das obras nacionaes e estrangeiras relativas aos successos politicos de Portugal nos annos de 1828 a 1834 (1892), p. 292.

        Mémoires sur Ma Vie, a Mon Fils, pendant les Années 1803 et suivantes.a La Louisianne.a La Martinique.a La Guyane Francaise

      Pau 1831 - 636pp., plus errata leaf. Half title. 19th-century half calf and cloth, spine gilt. Bookplate on front pastedown. A few light fox marks at the very front and rear of the text, else internally fresh. Famous Louisiana Rarity and Key Source An exceedingly rare account of the Louisiana Purchase and its transfer to American control, written by the French colonial prefect for Louisiana, and privately printed for his family. Pierre-Clément de Laussat formally received the Louisiana Territory from Spain on Nov. 30, 1803, and transferred it to the American commissioners, William C.C. Claiborne and Gen. James Wilkinson, on Dec. 20. Laussat also supervised the transfer of the Spanish colonial archives to Spain and to American officials. This is Laussat's own account of his experiences in Louisiana from March 1803 to April 1804, comprising nearly a third of the text. In the rest of the volume he describes his duties in Martinique and French Guyana. Beers asserts that 100 copies were privately printed for Laussat. Howes locates only the Yale copy, and Monaghan finds a single copy only, at the Bibliotheque Municipale in Pau, in the Pyrenees region of southern France, where the book was printed. OCLC also notes copies at the Historic New Orleans Collection, the New Orleans Public Library, and Tulane. "This is one of the rarest items of Americana in the nineteenth century" - Monaghan. An exceptionally desirable first-hand account of the Louisiana Purchase by the highest French authority serving in the region, in original condition.

        JOURNAL OF A CRUISE OF THE UNITED STATES SCHOONER DOLPHIN, AMONG THE ISLANDS OF THE PACIFIC OCEAN; AND A VISIT TO THE MULGRAVE ISLANDS, IN PURSUIT OF THE MUTINEERS OF THE WHALE SHIP GLOBE. WITH A MAP.

      New York. 1831. - 258pp. plus folding frontispiece map. Modern three-quarter calf and marbled boards, spine gilt with leather label. Map backed on linen, glued to front pastedown. Small portion of lower corner of p.141 torn away, affecting four lines of text. Lightly foxed. Good plus. A very scarce and important Pacific narrative, this is the account of the voyage of the Dolphin, a United States Navy schooner, which set out from Peru in August 1825 in search of the crew of the whaleship Globe, which had mutinied in the Pacific the year before. During their search the ship visited the Galapagos Islands, the Marquesas, and the Gilberts, before finding two survivors of the mutiny, William Lay and Cyrus Hussey, on the Mulgraves (now known as Milli Atoll), the rest of the crew having been murdered aboard ship, escaped to South America, or killed by natives. Paulding, the first officer of the Dolphin, recounts the details of his bold rescue of Lay and Hussey from the natives, and also describes the bloody mutiny. The Dolphin then sailed on to Hawaii, becoming the first American naval vessel to enter Honolulu harbor. They stayed there four months, and Paulding includes a description of the natives and their leaders, the activities of missionaries and European entrepreneurs, and Honolulu and its surroundings. The frontispiece is a map of the Mulgrave Islands. HILL 1319. HOWES P131, "aa." SABIN 59186. AMERICAN IMPRINTS 8637. FORBES 795. CARTER, p.139. FORSTER 80. JUDD & LIND 142. HUNTRESS 247C.

        A Dictionary of the English Language.

      London: Black, Young, and Young,, 1831-32. Reprinted by E. H. Barker... from a copy communicated by the author, and containing many manuscript corrections and additions: with an appendix by the editor. Two volumes, quarto (267 × 208 mm). Contemporary full calf recently rebacked to style, two-line gilt border on sides, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers. Printed in triple-columns. Armorial bookplates of Edward Weyman Wadeson (1792-1884), a notary public in Doctors' Commons and a vice-president of the Foundling Hospital. A few scrapes to bindings, vertical crease to title page of volume II. An attractive copy. First UK edition of the dictionary that almost at once became, and has remained, the standard English dictionary in the United States. Webster wanted to stress the political separation from Britain by the cultivation of a distinct American language, and so, under the influence of his friend Benjamin Franklin, turned his attention to "a reformed mode of spelling" and gave many printed American words their distinctive appearance. "[T]he book marked a definite advance in modern lexicography, as it included many non-literary terms and paid great attention to the language actually spoken. Moreover, his definitions of the meanings of words were accurate and concise (Sir James Murray, editor of the Oxford English Dictionary, called him 'a born definer of words') and have for the greater part stood the test of time superbly well. In fact, Webster succeeded in breaking the fetters imposed upon American English by Dr Johnson, to the ultimate benefit of the living languages of both countries" (PMM). The dictionary's English editor was the classical scholar Edmund Henry Barker (1788-1839), who carried on a lengthy correspondence with Webster.

      1831-1836 1831 - Manuscrit de 2 volumes in-4 de 850 pp., veau tabac plats finement quadrillés sous étui pour le premier volume, portefeuille sous étui à soufflet, veau tabac finement quadrillé, dos orné, triple filet d'encadrement sur les plats pour le volume de Supplément (reliure de l'époque signée Alphonse Giroux). Manuscrit autographe des poésies du vicomte Villiers du Terrage partiellement publié en 1834 sous le titre Loisirs d'un ancien magistrat suivi en 1836 d'une seconde édition publiée sous le titre Poésies morales et historiques. L'auteur a placé en tête de son recueil cet avertissement daté de mai 1836 : « Quoique beaucoup de mes vers aient été imprimés, je n'en recommande pas moins ces manuscrits à mes enfans. Ces portefeuilles, en outre de beaucoup de pièces que par ménagement je n'ai pas publiées, contiennent les plus souvent ma pensée primitive et intime. Si cette version est quelquefois un peu brute et négligée, elle compense ces défauts par une franchise et une vigueur d'expression que je n'aurai pas pu me permettre, dans les vers que j'ai mis au jour, sans soulever des tempêtes autour de moi. Paris le huit mai 1836. Vte de Villiers du Terrage. » Après avoir servi dans l'armée pendant les premières années de la République, Paul-Étienne vicomte Villiers du Terrage (1774-1858) embrassa en 1795 la carrière administrative, occupa sous l'Empire différents emplois puis fut, sous la Restauration, préfet des Pyrénées orientales, du Doubs et du Gard. Il fut élevé à la Pairie par Louis-Philippe en 1837. La révolution de 1848 mit fin à sa carrière politique. Frontispice sur Chine gravé par Marckl d'après Tony Johannot. Manuscrit d'une grande lisibilité dans une reliure signée Alphonse Giroux (1775-1848), libraire-relieur qui participa à l'exposition de 1827 où il obtint une médaille d'argent. En plus des reliures, Giroux réalisa de nombreux albums, portefeuilles et autres sous-main. Son magasin-atelier se trouvait au 7 rue du Coq-Saint-Honoré. Flety, Dictionnaire des relieurs, 82.

        Handbuch der Naturgeschichte aller Vögel Deutschlands worin nach den sorgfältigsten Untersuchungen und den genauesten Beobachtungen mehr als 900 einheimische Vögel-Gattungen zur Begründung einer ganz neuen Ansicht und Behandlung ihrer Naturgeschichte vollständig beschrieben sind.

      - Ilmenau, Voigt, 1831. 8vo (205 x 125mm). pp. xxiv, 1085, (3), with 47 hand-coloured engraved plates. Contemporary half calf, spine with gilt lettered red label (hinges skilfully repaired). The rare first edition of "a classic treatise on mid-European avifauna" (Wood 255). "In Folge eingehendster Specialkenntniss (erfuhr) die Grundlage des Systems, der Begriff der Art, eine Erweiterung insofern B. die Art schon als eine höhere systematische Gruppe fasste und die übereinstimmenden Individuen als Subspecies vereinigte." (Carus 710). "In this handbook, Brehm's chief work, the author gives his opinion on the system of Linnaeus, which is rejected as being too unnatural. The birds are divided into 23 orders which are again subdivided into genera, 'species', and 'subspecies' (Gattungen), by which the author understands birds resembling each other and mating with each other; whereas birds belonging to the same 'species' certainly bear a great resemblance to each other in most respects, but do not regularly mate with each other. Thus he went a step further than any other contemporary ornithologist in the division of birds into species" (Anker 66). The fine plates are after drawings by Bädeker and Th. Götz and engraved by W.

        The Life of Thomas Muir, Esq. Advocate... who was tried for sedition before the High Court of Judiciary in Scotland, and sentenced to Transportation for Fourteen Years..

      Glasgow: W.R. McPhun, Trongate; Simpkin & Marshall, London, 1831. Rubbed, a few spots and stains but generally good.. Octavo, with a silhouette portrait as frontispiece, old half calf, y. Scarce: the standard memoir of the 18th-century Scottish martyr. Thomas Muir was the most famous of the so-called "Scottish Martyrs" sentenced to transportation after free speech trials in Scotland. Together with his unfortunate fellow exiles he arrived in Sydney on the Surprize in October 1794. Muir lived quietly on a small farm on the North Shore opposite Sydney Cove, but in early 1796 caused a furore by taking advantage of the arrival of the American-registered fur-trader the Otter to escape English imprisonment. After an extraordinary series of adventures in America he eventually reached Paris in 1797 where he "assisted the Directoire on a proposal to invade England and worked on a lengthy manuscript account of his exile and subsequent travels…" (Wantrup). In 1799 he died in poverty.Ferguson recorded three copies of the book in Australian libraries, those originally owned by Dixson, Mitchell and himself.

        Original watercolour view of the coast of Jamaica with the Blue Mountains in the background and two fishing boats in the foreground.

      Jamaica: , 1831. Watercolour and ink on paper (90 × 380 mm), titled in pencil "Blue Mt. Jamaica" in the lower right corner; mounted on contemporary grey card mount (440 × 555 mm) with wash-line, and titled, initialled and dated in reddish ink "Blue Mountain, Jamaica, 1831, J.E.A.", window-mounted, framed and glazed. Mount a little soiled and with a few minor chips, but the sketch itself clean and overall in very good condition. A highly evocative watercolour view of the Jamaican coastline with the famed Blue Mountains, the longest mountain range of the island, in the background. Sir James Alexander, the artist, noted the grandeur of this very scene in the published version of his travels: "After a week's run we sighted afar off the dim outline of part of St. Domingo, and then the lofty mountains near Point Morant, the eastern cape of Jamaica. It was a magnificent scene, this part of the island; the Blue Mountains, eight thousand feet high, towered above a stratum of clouds, and the rugged hills below them were furrowed by ravines; we could see no level land, but the steep cliffs descended abruptly into the sea, on which were one or two small coasting vessels. As we approached nearer, we observed that the hills were not altogether barren, black forests were upon their sides, and patches of bright emerald green, and white houses, were seen as we ran along the south coast towards Port Royal" (Transatlantic Sketches, Comprising Visits to the Most Interesting Scenes in North and South America, and the West Indies Â… 1833. 2 vols. vol. I. p.285). Alexander (1803-1855) was a British army officer and a fellow of the Royal Geographical Society. He served in India, Persia, South Africa, Canada, New Zealand, participated in the First Anglo-Burmese War, and Crimean War. It was he who "saved Cleopatra's Needle from destruction, and had much to do with its transfer to England in 1877. At its base he buried, among other artefacts, photographs of the twelve best-looking English women of the day. His extensive travels provided material for his varied publications, which included Travels from India to England (1827) and Cleopatra's Needle (1879)" (ODNB). In 1831, in the rank of Captain of 42nd Royal Highlanders, Alexander travelled to British Guiana, West Indies, United States and Canada. In South America he went up the Essequibo River, in the West Indies extensively travelled around Barbados, Tobago, Trinidad, Grenada, St. Vincent, Jamaica "with its blue mountains, fertile savannahs, and deadly lagoons" and Cuba. Then he sailed to New Orleans and went up the Mississippi to Memphis, through Tennessee and Kentucky to Louisville and the Falls of Ohio. After that he went to Virginia, visited Lake Erie, Niagara Falls, crossed Lake Ontario to York (Upper Canada), saw Kingston, Ottawa and along St. Lawrence River went to Quebec, before moving on to to New York, Washington, where met the President, Boston, from there returning to Liverpool. Alexander "volunteered to execute commissions" for Royal Geographical Society and "other literary and scientific individuals" regarding places he visited and was very interested in the problems of "slavery, military matters, state of society and manners" (from the Preface). The present watercolour was certainly intended to be an illustration for his Transatlantic Sketches, but was not included in the final publication, the Caribbean being represented by views of St. Vincent and Havana.

A fine set.Daniel Defoe(1660-1731) was an English trader, writer, journalist, pamphleteer, and spy, most famous for his novel Robinson Crusoe. Defoe is noted for being one of the earliest proponents of the novel, as he helped to popularize the form in Britain with others such as Samuel Richardson, and is among the founders of the English novel. He was a prolific and versatile writer, producing more than five hundred books, pamphlets, and journals on various topics, including politics, crime, religion, marriage, psychology, and the supernatural. He was also a pioneer of economic journalism. The first edition of Robinson Crusoe was published on 25 April 1719. The novel credited the work's protagonist Robinson Crusoe as its author, leading many readers to believe he was a real person and the book a travelogue of true incidents. It was published under the full title The Life and Strange Surprizing Adventures of Robinson Crusoe, Of York, Mariner: Who lived Eight and Twenty Years, all alone in an un-inhabited Island on the Coast of America, near the Mouth of the Great River of Oroonoque; Having been cast on Shore by Shipwreck, wherein all the Men perished but himself. With An Account how he was at last as strangely deliver'd by Pyrates.
