Sabin 7500; Tiele 1242; cf. Borba de Moraes, p. 728 note; European Americana 729/2 (2 copies); STCN (1 copy); WorldCat (same copy). Surprisingly rare manual for travellers, soldiers and merchants by an anonymous traveller, describing the history and most important provinces and cities of Holland, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Brazil, several countries in Africa such as Morocco, Ethiopia and Algeria, and the island Jersey. The author mentions the persons who played an important role in the history of these particular areas, and assesses each city according to the quality of its buildings, roads and fortifications. The chapter on Brazil is especially of interest as it deals with the discovery of the country, and with the customs and traditions of its people. The first edition, in French, was published at The Hague by M. G. de Merville in 1728. The last ten pages of the preliminaries give a table of contents and an alphabetical list of cities, provinces and countries.In very good condition, with only some very minor worm holes in the gutter margin and spine, and the paper very slightly browned. A rare and informative travel guide with a chapter on Brazil.
